Cimarron County, Oklahoma, was the epicenter of the 1930s Dust Bowl. Today, the farming and ranching community of 2,500 people on the tip of the Oklahoma panhandle has become the epicenter of another drought, this one regarded as the most severe in fifty years, and one that has affected 80 percent of agricultural lands in the U.S. Together, VII’s Ed Kashi and Ashley Gilbertson travelled to Cimarron Country in late July and early August 2013, and used audio interviews, video and still images to capture the spirit and identity of this community—sharing the perspectives of people involved in ranching and farming for generations in the area.
