"Let them kill, skin, and sell until the buffalo is exterminated, as it is the only way to bring lasting peace and allow civilization to advance." - General Philip Sheridan
We set out for a visual search for the traces of the spirit and mysticism of the returning bison. The bison is a symbol for us. We are truly convinced that there must be places where archaic creatures may live freely. Only a world in which this is possible is a world worth living in. This is what the bison stands for.
The project was photographed in the heart of the bison country in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota and North Dakota.
