BOOKS - L.A. Huffman - Photographer of the American West
compiled and authored by Larry Len Peterson.
Huffman was really the first to go and document the west as it was when the buffalo hunters and Native tribes still controlled. It was quickly ending, and Huffman was there to capture both the end of what was - open prairie, free ranging bison hunted without season or controls as a necessity - and the beginning of what was to be - ranching, sheep, cattle, fencing.
This is a "Revised Edition", but the collection is absolutely fantastic. Each picture has a way of taking you back and putting you right behind the camera. You are there next to him; watching what once was.
There are more than 300 spectacular images of the American West, most of them from the extensive collection of Gene and Beverly Allen, as well as reproductions of many of Huffman’s printed and published collectibles and memorabilia.
I've been collecting Huffman prints and postcards when I can find them ... but nothing like this.
