Message From the Exterior

Mark Ruwedel is inspired by the 19th-century photographers whose photo albums revealed the glories of the American West. He differs from his predecessors, however, in that his view of the landscape is not uncritical. Instead, he layers history with a contemporary investigation of technology, anthropology, colonization and humor. This monograph is separated into two sections: Desert Houses and Dusk.
