Award-winning photography by Terra Fondriest

Terra Fondriest is a documentary photographer living in the Ozarks of Arkansas with her husband and two children. After halting her former work life as a wildland firefighter, she began her journey as a mother in 2011 and 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.

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
