Keith Lane is the visual journalist responsible for the One Hour Sooner multimedia project. He started the project to explore the ties agricultural communities living just behind the front lines of a conflict have with the land. For over fifteen years Lane has studied the intersections between the environment and society. While long-term studies of local ecologies, cultural anthropology and conflicts exist, he failed to find any that tackle all three in a single format driven by firsthand narratives and visual documentation. One Hour Sooner seeks to fill that void and answer the questions of how and why agricultural peoples remain in war zones despite the presence of ongoing and disruptive conflict.
