David Benjamin Sherry’s series of monochromatic photographs of the American West drew inspiration from Group f/64 – a collective formed in 1932 including photographers Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Ruth Bernhard and other notables. While they scorned photo manipulation, Sherry manipulated his photography through a darkroom process to create a more colorful version of the West.
