Dona McAdams has been making photographs for over forty years. We talk about where art has taken her: the stages of Performance Space in the 80’s and 90’s, Coney Island assisted living facilities, homeless shelters, small mountain communities in Appalachia, dairy farms in New England, and on the backstretch of thoroughbred racetracks. Dona’s reverence for her subjects and appetite for collaboration is remarkable. And she’s a goat farmer! All that and more.
