I am very impressed with the color work of Bryan Schutmaat, particularly the series titled “Grays the Mountain Sends”.
From Bryan’s website:
“Grays the Mountain Sends
This project combines portraits, landscapes, and still lifes in a series of photos that explores the lives of working people
residing in small mountain towns and mining communities in the American West. Equipped with a large format view
camera, and inspired by the poetry of Richard Hugo, I’ve aimed to hint at narratives and relay the experiences of strangers
met in settings that spur my own emotions. Ultimately, this body of work is a meditation on small town life, the landscape,
and more importantly, the inner landscapes of common men.
