Anna and Helen, Blue Earth County Fair, Minnesota, 2016, from the series "The Unchosen Ones"

By RJ Kern

The Unchosen Ones takes place on the sidelines of county fair animal contests in Minnesota in 2016. These county fairs lead up to the Minnesota State Fair, one of the largest and best-attended expositions in the world. One isn’t born a winner or loser, but a chooser. This theme I explore in this series. As we look at them, they look back, allowing us to think about how we choose winners and the repercussions for the ones not chosen.
