Honored to have had my first solo exhibition at the Open Shutter Gallery here in my hometown of Durango, Colorado!

The show, titled The American West, graced the gallery’s Red Room last month in what is a bittersweet chapter for the Open Shutter. The gallery will officially close its doors at the end of this year, as the owner, Margy Dudley, is taking a leave of the gallery to pursue her own career in photography and passion for world travel…

This collection of images made throughout the West is a culmination of over ten years of photographing personal projects and assignments in my own backyard.

It was delightful to have such a great turnout over the last few weeks, friends, family and colleagues whom all made their way into the OSG.

My eighty-seven year old Grandfather was among them — his portrait coincidentally graced the gallery walls on this occasion!

Thanks to everyone who made this show possible…it was highlight!

— Best, Jeremy
