Bryan Schutmaat: Grays the Mountain Sends

RICHARD SPEER
Friday April 11
 
It’s easy to romanticize small-town life and bucolic mountains if you’re an overworked, under-natured city dweller. But photographer Bryan Schutmaat captures something less romantic, more complex in his images of hardscrabble mining towns throughout the American West. Not all of these landscapes are beautiful; some are despoiled by clear-cutting, garbage dumps, and the kinds of houses that have 10 cars and trucks up on cinder blocks. The grizzled habitués of these places stare at Schutmaat’s lens with an inscrutable blend of pride, weariness and deep distrust of strangers. Through April 27.
