Richard Wilhelm’s photographs accompanying the excerpts of Dryland unite his decade-long connection to the land and people represented in the film with his bond with rural life in Kentucky, where he was born and where he received his first camera at age six. Richard’s long-time fascination with the visual interplay of and tension between natural forms and human enterprise now finds ready expression in an arid landscape marked by the struggle over decades of family farms to survive.
