One of the Most Important architectural photographers working today, MacKenzie chronicles a fast-disappearing manifestation of the American Dream -- the eloquent remains of barns, houses, and schools erected by immigrant settlers. His crisp black-and-white prints provide a poignant reminder that architecture sometimes becomes most evocative when it slips toward ruin.

With an artist's eye, an architect's sensibility, and a native son's passion, MacKenzie has made poetic images of these primitive but elegant structures that transcend both time and place.
