Ann Diener: The Invented Land

As a fourth-generation descendant of a Southern California farming family, Ann Diener has a deep connection to the land and is fascinated with its continual state of change. Several years ago, while visiting her late grandparents’ farm, she was struck by how abruptly and significantly this land had changed. No longer was she able to recognize her old haunts or familiar landmarks; the crops and trees were gone, the roads were reconfigured, and fertile farmland was covered in a shroud of industrial farming operations.
