Gregory Halpern has been photographing in Omaha, Nebraska, for the past 15 years, steadily compiling a lyrical, if equivocal response to the American Heartland. Halpern's series 'Omaha Sketchbook' explores notions of cognitive dissonance and unexpected harmonies, playing on a sense of simultaneous repulsion and attraction to the place. The series is ultimately a meditation on America, on the men and boys who inhabit it, and on the mechanics of aggression, inadequacy, and power.
