Richard Buswell: Close to Home

For more than four decades, Richard Buswell has trained his camera on the landscape of Montana, with its abandoned and overgrown homesteads and majestic, never-ending skies. His black-and-white photographs frame cast-off, common things to reveal abstract patterns in the tradition of twentieth-century modernist photography. Buswell describes his work as more interpretive and abstract than documentary. The images explore the junction where decaying artifacts become visual echoes of the past.
