America’s Heartland

America’s Heartland

Iowa, with its endless farm fields and quiet towns, is gearing up for its four-yearly starring role in the U.S. presidential elections. Once again the state will become the focus of the nation as the long and sometimes quirky process of electing the next U.S. president begins. Even though the Iowa caucus is still 11 months away, potential candidates have already starting to visit the Midwestern state. Jim Young’s pictures give us a glimpse into the state known as America’s Heartland.
