Medicine Lake, Montana, (located about 25 miles from North Dakota and about 30 miles from Canada) is my father's hometown. It was founded in 1910 by my great-grandfather who served as the town's first mayor. He then served as the town doctor and ran the local pharmacy in town. My grandfather also served as mayor and ran the pharmacy until the mid 1980's when he retired. I have been going up there my entire life for family gatherings and hunting trips. Whenever I go up there, it has always been a surreal experience both from the drastic contrast between the town and my experience growing up and living in Southern California and hearing stories from the locals. With this series, I wanted to illustrate my experiences there.
