Equipped with a large format view camera, and inspired by the poetry of Richard Hugo, Bryan Schutmaat 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.”Grays the Mountain Sends was named one of the best photobooks of 2013 by The Washington Post, Photo District News, Hotshoe International, and numerous other critics. It took the top prize in the photobook category in the New York Photo Awards, it was shortlisted for The Paris Photo/Aperture Photobook Awards, and it was acquired by libraries at the MoMA, New York and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. From Tom Claxton: “The individual constituents of photobook production are rarely consolidated as wonderfully as they are in Schutmaat’s sumptuous debut release. This remarkably sensitive and lyrical portrait of small mountain towns of the American West is one of the most thoughtfully constructed photobooks of recent years.”
