Laura Wilson's "That Day: Pictures in the American West"


The images are from Laura Wilson's That Day: Pictures in the American West. Some of the photographs were in her exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth last winter. Born during World War II, Wilson grew up watching Western movies and reading the cowboy literature of America’s wild West.
Here's Wilson, from an interview by Guy Reynolds: “There is the myth and the romantic West, which are, of course, deep within me, growing up as I did in the 1950s,” she says. “I was very interested in the painting and the architecture of the West. I like the open space. I like everything about it.”
