"The Crossing" Black and White Bison Photography
"Stumptown" - Antelope Island, Utah - Edition of 35
Bison have to be one of the best subjects for black and white photography. Bison are powerful, majestic, and intelligent animals. You can tell there's a lot of wisdom trapped beneath their thick fur and pointed horns.
This particular bison was definitely the leader of the pack. He lead the bison herd a mere 15 feet in from of our car, and we carefully photographed him while hanging out our car window on Antelope island in Utah. Antelope island is home to one of the largest and oldest free-range herd of bison left in the United States. Bison have been a longstanding symbol of freedom, strength, and self determination, and it is a pleasure trying to capture these sentiments in a photograph.
The images in this series are equal parts modern and rustic, and were created with modern interior design in mind. We intentionally use very high ISOs to create the appearance of film grain, and add texture and warmth to each image. Images in this series are printed in small, fine art editions of 35 for prints 24x36 and over, and editions of 100 for prints 20x30 and under. Prints come on museum grade photographic paper for superior fade resistance.
