Then&Now- Go West

Then- The book ‘Hard Twist,’ written by Barbara Van Cleve with her black & white images, was published in 1995. Spanning over a decade, Van Cleve traveled the wild west states- Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico and others. Instead of photographing cowboys, she focused her lens on their female counterpart. Her portraits capture these hardworking yet tender women ranchers at their best.
