Kentuckians are proud of their 120 counties, originally formed so that people could access government within a day’s traveling distance by horse, mule or foot. Most of today’s Kentuckians identify their home, their growing-up years and their ancestry by county. Counties shape Kentuckians’ stories and provide a strongly rooted sense of place. The photographs selected for KENTUCKY 120 represent the most artful imagery in each of the commonwealth’s counties. The photographs were made by Ed Lawrence during his journeys on Kentucky backroads — without a destination in mind. Accumulating thousands of photographs over the years, he found the easiest way to catalog them was by county. While a few pictures portray readily identifiable local landmarks, most locations would only be known by those who own the land or pass by on a regular basis. Many were shot on public lands. Ed Lawrence uses a square format to frame the scene for his viewers as if they traveled together to each county in the state. Earth, water and sky are at the core of his work, capturing the line, color and form of landscapes shaped by nature, humanity or both. Through these photographs, Ed Lawrence conveys his love and deep connection to all of Kentucky, from the Mississippi River to the Appalachian Mountains. a portrait of Kentucky
