Recently I started a new project exploring the American west. Having lived in the West fro nearly 15 years now I’m still in awe of the vast diversity and beauty of the land. My intent with black-white-west is to explore the lessor known and traveled areas of the West and try and capture what it is that I love so much about it.
In future posts I’ll share my travels as well as the images I create and the stories behind them.
The image in this post was taken near Westcliffe, CO and is one of the images from my first trip as part of this project. To me the image exemplifies the juxtaposition of the Mountain West and the Great Plains. The sharp peaks of the mountains appear to tear though the plain and the arroyo further enhances the look of torn earth.
