That’s exactly where a great photograph places us. The reality of our own space and time and even mood is suspended, and a vision — captured and sometimes crafted — transports us.
The staff of The Iowan always looks forward to the journey we’re privileged to take each year as we review and choose our favorite moments from the hundreds on display at the Iowa State Fair’s annual Photography Salon. We settled on six extraordinary images that will each be showcased in the pages of The Iowan over the next year. Those and the photographs of all finalists in The Iowan’s State Fair Favorites are presented here.
Entry rules for the 2013 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon are posted online. The 2013 theme class is Iowa Waterways. The deadline for entering is Sunday, June 16.
