Contemporary Photographers


It’s the day before Thanksgiving, which is a good opportunity to reflect a bit on American and how (and as what) its people see it. Enters Bryan Schutmaat’s Western Frieze: “these photos are not meant to be pure documentation of America and its identity, but rather a portrait of what American identity means to me, and by photographing the West - where enigma, nostalgia, and history can be found in everyday scenes - I hope to help viewers find out what it means to them, whether or not they ever visit these sleepy towns and loneliest of landscapes for themselves.” (found here)
