Publisher's Description

Devils Gate, Devils Canyon, Bumpass Hell, Hells Half Acre, Dirty Devil River: photographer Mark Ruwedel visited all of these places and more while creating the series Pictures of Hell. This book is the culmination of the journey he began in 1995, and brings together virtually every image in the artist’s brilliant interpretation of the American West. Ruwedel, 2014 winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the prestigious Canadian Scotiabank Award, is inspired by the 19th-century photographers whose photo albums revealed the glories of the West. In Pictures of Hell, he layers history with a contemporary investigation of technology, anthropology and colonization. Ruwedel’s work has been exhibited at TATE Modern, Yale University Art Gallery, SFMoMA, LACMA and other important venues. 132 meticulously reproduced tritone plates are complemented with essays by Simon Baker and Chiara Siravo. With intellect and wit, Ruwedel investigates what the West means today, and how its mythology and culture affect our current sensibilities.
