Description
Taken in Galisteo, New Mexico, this picture was made on the movie set for the Hollywood Western “Silverado.” Instead of photographing the front of the set -- the façade created for viewers -- the artist concentrates on the construction on the back side, where a dynamic network of struts supports the illusion.
