Grays the Mountain Sends 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.
