Western Landscapes


When we imagine a place in our mind the image is usually not crystal clear, but a fuzzy image containing the general shapes and colors of the place we're thinking of. If you imagine the American West there's a certain palette of colors and the shapes of rolling hills and mountains. In our mind it’s a place of wide open spaces and big skies mostly unpopulated by people. While this is true most of the land in the west is separated from the public by fence, mostly barbed wire. Though the fences were mostly put up to keep cattle in they also serve as a barrier to keep people out. 


These images are meant to capture the imagined landscapes of the west somewhere beyond the reality of the barbed wire fences that keep us out.
