Of her work, Evans says, "My aerial photographs are not about visual design; they are about specific places. They show marks that contain contradictions and mysteries which raise questions about how we live on the prairie." For more than three decades, Evans has photographed the Great Plains, beginning with native prairies in her home state of Kansas. In 1989 she added bird’s-eye perspective to her repertoire of photographic approaches, spending countless hours from the vantage point of a light plane, flying about 600 feet off the ground. She has sensitively recorded the changing prairie and its inhabitants, particularly drawn to the pattern of human marks left on the environment-as seen in this large-scale, richly colored and textured composition of a Canadian farm surrounded by plowed fields.
