Disappearing America [PHOTOS]

Slideshow

Looking over his 50 years of work, David Plowden sees an America on the move, an America in transit. He has unbounded admiration for the people he has met and photographed along the way - the quiet competence and sense of duty he saw in the men and women of America's towns and rural areas.

But David hasn't published a photo in about two years. He talks with Dick Gordon about what stops him: namely, the feeling that the America he knew is gone, and with it, many of the people he photographed with such admiration.
