Arriving in Fort Keogh, Montana Territory, in 1879, ten years before Montana would become a state, frontier photographer Laton Alton Huffman (1854–1931) would capture the spirit of the American West like no other artist. Equally comfortable photographing Plains Indians and working cowboys, Huffman worked both in the studio and out on the open range, carrying his camera on horseback as he documented untamed Western landscapes and the last of the buffalo herds.
L. A. Huffman: Photographer of the American West contains 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. In preparing this revised edition, Gene Allen and Larry Len Peterson selected their favorite images from the previous editions and added others from the Allen collection, including five of Huffman's rare photomurals.

About the Author:

Dr. Larry Len Peterson is the recipient of two Western Heritage Awards and the Scriver Bronze. He is an acknowledged expert on art and art history of the American West. His other publications include Philip R. Goodwin: American’s Sporting and Wildlife Artist (2007), The Call of the Mountains, The Artists of Glacier National Park (2002), and Charles M. Russell: Printed Rarities from Private Collections (2008). Dr. Peterson is a native of Plentywood, Montana, and lies with his wife, LeAnne, on the Spirit of Winter Ranch near Sisters, Oregon.

Review:

The lesson of Huffman s work is that photography used with intelligence, enthusiasm, knowledge, and passion can help us to enlarge and enrich our understanding of and our affection for the West that has passed. In my humble estimation, no one did it better than L.A. Huffman. --Larry Len Peterson

Book Description Mountain Press Publishing Company, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Frontier photographer L. A. Huffman (1854 - 1931) captured the spirit of the American West like no other artist. As comfortable photographing the haunting images of the plains Indians as he was the working cowboy, Huffman accurately recorded a passing way of life on the American western frontier. Arriving in Fort Keogh, Montana Territory, in 1879, ten years before Montana would become a state, Huffman realized the importance of recording the end of the open range, untamed western landscapes, the plains Indian, and the last of the buffalo herds. While many painters and photographers created art that romantized the West, Huffman photographed everyday life, ranging from ranching and hunting scenes to landscapes of Yellowstone National Park. This handsome volume contains over 500 spectacular images of the American West. Includes index. Seller Inventory # AAC9780878425143
