For the past 15 years, gregoryhalpern has been photographing Omaha, Nebraska, and loosely collaging the resulting pictures into a hand-made construction-paper sketchbook. “The work plays on a sense of simultaneous attraction and repulsion to the place, and is a meditation on America, on the men and boys who inhabit it, and on the mechanics of aggression, inadequacy, and power,” he wrote. This week, Halpern is sharing photographs from his upcoming book, “Omaha Sketchbook,” over at newyorkerphoto. Follow to see more.
