Mountain Ranch with Michael Crouser
Michael Crouser, author of two critically acclaimed photography books, is here to celebrate his new book Mountain Ranch. Intimate without being sentimental about the realities of ranch work, Mountain Ranch's duotone images capture the raw and basic elements of a hard and basic life. The mountain ranches of western Colorado preserve a way of life that has nearly vanished from the American scene. Families who have lived on the same land for five or six generations raise cattle much as their ancestors did, following an annual cycle of breeding, birthing, branding, grazing, and selling livestock. Michael Crouser spent more than a decade (2006-2016) photographing family cattle ranches in Colorado. Come explore the scenes of Colorado at the Bookworm.
