West Summary

West: The American Cowboy by Anouk Krantz

The ranching communities in the heartland of the great American West may be a long way from New York City, but renowned photographer Anouk Krantz has been drawn back time and time again to explore this largely unfamiliar and overlooked part of the world. In West: The American Cowboy, Anouk revisits this enduring iconic symbol of America's pioneering spirit. Set out in a stunning large-format book, the pages within inspire with a fresh and contemporary perspective of the American West. Along with the cowboy's ranching traditions comes a life built around the core values and faith that are central to their integrity. Long admired for their strength, relentless work ethic, and humble values, the forgotten American cowboy is alive and well, and has never stood in such stark contrast to the rapidly changing nation that surrounds them. Earning wide acclaim for her incredible fine art work exhibited in galleries and published in the bestselling Wild Horses of Cumberland Island (2017), also by IMAGES, West: The American Cowboy is another artful, intimate study of the American character and their sense of place, and is a unique collection of works brought together by this award-winning photographer and storyteller.

West Reviews

John Wayne was always one to grab the bulls by the horns. As do the wranglers photographed in West: The American Cowboy, the forthcoming new book that reframes contemporary ranch culture. The book's black and white portraits, which range from rodeos and wranglers to open skies and dramatic flatlands, have a cinematic quality that evokes a lodestar of American life: the Wild West. One can't help but imagine how intrepid auteur Anouk Masson Krantz might have photographed Duke in his day, being as he was, most home on the range (and obviously comfortable with the camera): with hat, horse and bandana to boot.--Jenn Thornton The John Wayne Foundation . A unique collection from an award-winning photographer and storyteller, the book is an artful, intimate study of American character and sense of place.-- The Independent. 'In this oversize ode to the American West, French photographer Anouk Masson Krantz captures the expansiveness of the frontier as well as the rodeo cowboys, ranchers, country-music singers, and cattle that call it home - all in expressive black-and-white'. --; 'The iconic symbol of America's pioneering spirit captured in a series of lavish fine art pictures: Jaw-dropping images of the Wild West's cowboys and epic landscapes.' -- Sarah Holt, Daily Mail; Her quest was not to glorify well-known ranches or big-name cowboys but to show the hard work of the West and the people who do it... whose experiences and encounters are chronicled in this handsome volume of 137 striking black-and-white images. -- Cowboys and Indians: The Premier Magazine of the West; 'West: The American Cowboy' explores, in black and white, the enduring iconic symbol of our country's pioneering spirit. She also focused her lens on the wide-open spaces in a largely overlooked part of the world. -- Alice Garbarini Hurley, Aspire Design and Home;
