upstate, matt werner
When world-roving photographers touch down in new territory they rarely do it without a fixer or guide. While northern Indiana may not be 'foreign' ground, it was virgin turf to us and as luck would have it our fixer was living in the heart of LaPorte County. Matt Werner lives on his family farm outside of Union Mills and is not what you would describe as a typical farm boy. I think he's best summed up this way - a well educated (MBA) basketball junkie, part local historian, part published author who spent much of his youth shooting hoops in a barn. Just the guy to find old gyms. So, in the upcoming weeks, pick up his books (from Amazon), and follow us around some amazing places 'upstate'. CGS.
