Photographs by Bryan Schutmaat, text by William Kittredge, edition of 600 copies. Includes 42 full color plates printed with UV inks on Mohawk Superfine uncoated paper. Flexible offset-printed cover. Screwpost binding with custom fabricated steel spine.

In Grays the Mountain Sends, Schutmaat skillfully documents the rugged landscapes and people of the great American West. The images describe a series of mining sites and small, hardscrabble mountain towns. Also portrayed are the people who have worked in them, built them, and a few younger people who might—or might not—be looking for a way out of them. It’s this balance between the clearly ravaged land and equally devastated faces, with a few moments of youth, beauty, and the last glimmer of promises never truly fulfilled, that elevates Schutmaat’s work. His photographs, carefully controlled in both palette and structure, have a true regional twang. They evoke the wear and tear perpetrated on the land, as well as on the psyche of people who live there, with scant separation in one’s sense of the individuals and one’s sense of the place.
