Spillville Iowa as photographed by Nate Howard

Nothing fancy here.
Spillville, Iowa is a small town in northeast Iowa. If a tourist comes to town, they will visit the Bily's Clock Museum featuring hand carved wooden clocks by two bachelor farming brothers.
In the same building as the museum is where Antonín Dvořák lived with his family. The great composer from Prague, then New York City, wanted to listen to the birds again.
He spent the summer of 1893 with his family in the Czech-speaking community of Spillville, Iowa, to which some of his cousins had earlier immigrated. While there he composed the String Quartet in F (the "American"), and the String Quintet in E flat, as well as a Sonatina for violin and piano.

Nate Howard has traveled the world as a photojournalist. The photographs he sent to us were from, Russia, Mexico, Iraq, and Kosovo. Photography taken all around the world does not always have a lot of similarities, but what we were most impressed by was Mr. Howard’s ability to capture quiet human moments that made us feel like we knew the people photographed.
