"Sentinels. Guardians. Cathedrals. These are just some of the words used to describe the towering grain elevators still dotting Indiana's countryside. Photographer John Bower has captured the majestic dignity of these vanishing agricultural icons, along with small - town feed mills and picturesque grist mills. After the Harvest is a celebration of the simple dignity of these utilitarian structures-their soaring wood, concrete, and tile exteriors, as well as their dusty, dark, hidden interior spaces.

"After the Harvest contains 186 moving photographs by John Bower, all reproduced in beautiful duotones giving them a slight sepia tint.

Author John Bower of Studio Indiana says, "For this project, I've photographed grain elevators and feed mills throughout Indiana. I've captured, primarily, older - style elevators and feed mills - those still in use, as well as facilities that have been abandoned."

"This book project was made possible in part by the Indiana Arts Commission, a state agency, with funds from the Indiana General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts."
