I find so many of the photographs to be moving, dignified, and deeply sympathetic, I am not sure you can ask more of a photographer. (Lyle Rexer Photograph Magazine)

This book reminds me of my love for the land--of my neighbors' love for the plants and crops it produces, the animals that graze upon it--of our longing to be worthy stewards, and to live WITH the natural cycles rather than to manipulate until we betray the land.
I thought the aerial photos particularly fascinating because the Cessna Cub allowed Moore to get close enough to buildings (frequently abandoned) and vegetation to reveal the feel of landscape. The first photo in the book stretches over a spread and shows a small schoolhouse, built in 1900, set in the brown countryside with no road, pupils went to school by horseback. Other aerial shots show farms with two or three building and no other structures or trees for miles. This is more than a book of excellent landscape photos, the human side of the Plains is revealed with images of fracking in North Dakota, pipelines, freight trains, pivot irrigation, cattle farming and some portraits of hardy folk who are happy to live in this rather inhospitable country.
'Dirt meridian' is a beautifully produced and printed book, the back pages have two essays and thumbnails of all the photos with interesting captions. Like his 2010 photo book of Detroit ruins (also published by Damiani) Andrew Moore has delivered a fine selection of Plains imagery.
