Billy Fong UNDER WRAPS The Inside's Maximalist Muse B U Z Z Y BEE T he cowboy has long been an archetype of the American West: a solitary, fearless figure who embodies the spirit of independence. In her most recent book, American Cowboys (Images Publishing), photographer Anouk Masson Krantz intimately captures the lives of these trailblazers. The French-born artist's previous books, Wild Horses of Cumberland Island (2017) and West: The American COWBOY UP Cowboy (2019), earned her national recognition; her photography has also appeared in galleries and museums. For American Cowboys, she traveled solo across the country, exploring the realities of ranch and cowboy culture. Through an unvarnished lens, Krantz invites us into an elusive world filled with untold stories largely overlooked by history.
