Richard Buswell has photographed Western settlement sites, ghost towns and frontier homesteads for more than 41 years. Throughout his career, Buswell increasingly has moved closer to his subject matter, emphasizing corroded artifacts and decayed bones to reveal the ravages of time. Ironically, Buswell’s photographs are not about loss, but about preservation. Buswell documents the effects of extraction and industry, while also portraying the renewal of the land. “Close to Home” features photographs from Buswell’s book of the same name and will run from November 1st - February 9th.
