Grays the Mountain Sends combines portraits, landscapes, and still lifes in a series of photographs ​that explore the lives of working people residing in small mountain towns and mining communities in the American ​West. ​Equipped with a large format view ​camera, and inspired by the poetry of Richard Hugo, I’ve aimed ​to hint at narratives ​and relay the experiences of strangers ​met in settings that spur my own emotions. Ultimately, this body of work ​is a ​meditation on small town life, the landscape, and more importantly, the inner landscapes of common men.
