About Staley-Wise

In this exhibition of black and white photography, Kurt Markus continues his exploration of cowboy life in the American west and of the nude. The western photographs document a life of majestic sweeping landscapes, solitude and tedium, and communal life. A hard life of plain food, plain surroundings, horses, and exposure to the elements. This work as well as the nude studies demonstrate Markus' poetic sensibility combined with his realistic approach to image making.

Born in Rounding, Montana in 1947, Markus began his career photographing the west: the landscape and cowboy life. Work in fashion and travel photography followed. His work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally. His books include After Barbed Wire, Buckaroo, Boxers, and the new Cowpuncher.
