Traveling the West for the past three years, Austin based artist Christa Blackwood has been working with her large format, film view cameras and models. Her recent series, taken throughout Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah stages the nude male within the majesty of North America’s rugged western landscape – situating her subject in a genealogy of classical photographic studies of the human figure.
