A Month in the West by Edouard Sepulchre

“A Month in the West” is the latest collection from French photographer Edouard Sepulchre. The photo set, shot in the American Southwest, represents a visual journey with roots in Sepulchre’s childhood.

As a boy, Sepulchre was a fan of iconic American Western movies, and covered his walls with images from those films. Influenced by Easy Rider, he dreamed of American road trips. And he was drawn to images by American colorists such as William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, and Joel Meyerowitz.

As an adult and a photographer in his own right, Sepulchre was drawn to the American West to compose and capture his own images.

“A Month in the West” is the result of that personal journey, and Sepulchre’s images capture the vast spaces and muted hues of these distinctive places. Sepulchre’s cinematic influences are apparent in the composition and subject selection, but he brings a spare restraint to each shot. His use of natural light and a limited color palette makes these images highly evocative.

While utterly contemporary, these photos unerringly recall the American West of the past. The viewer comes to share Sepulchre’s childhood imagery of Route 66 and dusty cowboys, hot winds and far horizons. The photos represent a historic, mythic version of America, caught in glimpses through a camera lens.
