Terra Fondriest is a documentary photographer living in the rural Ozarks of Arkansas with her husband and two children. After receiving a B.S. in Fish and Wildlife Conservation from the University of Illinois in 2004, she moved into a career as a wildland firefighter, but then halted that as she began her journey as a mother in 2011. Terra then started documenting her growing family at their remote home in the hills. Her photography has slowly evolved into the exploration of the people, culture and landscapes around her in a project called Ozark Life.
