Fargo, N.D.

Having imagined Fargo as remote and exotic, Steinbeck found the town disappointingly ordinary. He drove on to camp near Alice, North Dakota, where he encountered an itinerant Shakespearean actor. We retrace Steinbeck’s path with Wayne Gudmundson, a Fargo native who has photographed the region’s eerily flat landscape, and the man-made marks on it, for forty years.
