John Balsom’s (b. 1970, British) first book Diamond Cross evokes an intimate and poignant contemplation and self-examination through the religious part of American West culture. With its enduring and symbolic icon of the cowboy, which has predominantly been characterised through centuries in the media as gunfighters on horseback, the series tells a earthly tale from exceptional pastures, its rich scenery and with a raging past.
Documenting horse whisperer Grant Golliher, his wife Jane Golliher, their son Luke Long and their family of ranch workers, Balsom captures the tranquil aura of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Its sustained heritage and the magic that happens in the valley may have a tangible affect on the beholder.
The book contains a preface written by John Balsom.
First edition of 700 copies. Special edition of 25 copies, numbered, in cardboard slipcase, screen printed in black, with signed silver gelatin hand print.
