Opening tonight in New York, Aperture Foundation presents Grays the Mountain Sends, an exhibition of photographs by Bryan Schutmaat, the 2013 Aperture Portfolio Prize Winner. The incredible series sees Schutmaat document the rugged landscapes and people of the great American West. The images describe a series of mining sites and small, hardscrabble mountain towns as well as the people who have worked in them, built them, and the disaffected young people who may or may not be looking for a means of escape from the land. Make sure to get down to the opening tonight if you’re in New York. Grays the Mountain Sends runs at Aperture Foundation until October 31, 2013.
