If you've ever visited a small town in North America, or happen to have grown up in one, you surely know about all the quirks and characters that come with the place, and the Mark Brautigam 'On Wisconsin' photo series puts on display these charming idiosyncrasies.

The Milwaukee-based photographer captures both the gorgeous landscapes and eccentric traits of Wisconsin in this project, which acts as a study of small town life. The graffiti-covered overpasses and wooden lodge pubs of rural communities all over North America get a nod in this series, which shows how beauty often comes from everyday things you might take for granted. My favorite photo of the project shows a snow-covered graveyard on a winter's evening, with a strip club lit up across the street.

Funny, heartwarming and heartbreaking, the Mark Brautigam 'On Wisconsin' series is definitely worth checking out.
