About this item
Tim Richmond's American West is a desolate place filled with cowboys (or men who look like cowboys), and the few women are also at least a little rough around the edges. There are mostly empty roads and what look like desolate towns, with whatever humans being present feeling like tumbleweeds being blown about. It is a place filled with characters and locations that manage to be specific and completely generic at the same time, with a rough, somewhat hurt, tenderness underneath.
Acclaimed British photographer Tim Richmond photographed the project over seven years in Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and South Dakota.
