Meet photographer Cody Weber.
Cody Weber is a no-coast photographer from Keokuk, Iowa. He has had a lifelong fascination with the history of his home state and a bittersweet love for his hometown.
He has committed himself to photograph and visit all 99 counties and all 947 towns in Iowa with hopes of capturing the soul and story of every one. He calls it Forgotten Iowa.
There are 947 towns in Iowa. I’m going to take pictures of every single one.
There is a real disconnect between city poor and rural poor and neither one seem to quite understand the other.
Read the Forgotten Iowa blog posts and see photographs here and here.
Check out the Forgotten Iowa Instagram, too.

Intriguing project, right?
