Drying Fish and Peat Fire

Artist: 
Donald J. Rommes

"This large, open fireplace is in a modest-sized room in the center of an old farmhouse. The blackened rocks attest to its frequent use over time, and the drying fish, kettle, and baking wheat cake illustrate its utility. Not visible in this photograph are the portable racks for drying clothes, the crowded mantle , and the small cabinets nearby. A visitor to this busy room would leave with a better understanding of both the daily lives of its inhabitants and the vision of the photographer who, by consciously directing the viewer's attention, attempts to create order out of chaos." – Don Rommes
