Prairie Fire Newspaper went on hiatus after the publication of the September 2015 issue. It may return one of these days but until then we will continue to host all of our archived content for your reading pleasure. Many of the articles have held up well over the years. Please contact us if you have any questions, thoughts, or an interest in helping return Prairie Fire to production. We can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you to all our readers, contributors, and supporters - the quality of Prairie Fire was a reflection of how many people it touched (touches).

Michael Farrell practices the traditional craft of photography using large-format cameras and lenses, developing his own black-and-white negatives, and making enlargements in his darkroom or in color through digital scans and inkjet printing. His works spans the genres of landscape, still life, and nudes. He has had a professional career in documentary film and television production with many award-winning nationally and internationally distributed programs during his forty-five years in public broadcasting. He is a recipient of the Nebraska Arts Council’s Individual Artist Fellowship in Visual Arts. His various one-person exhibitions have been included consistently in the top ten art events of the year by the Lincoln Journal Star.
