Anouk Krantz's newest work, Ranchland: Wagonhound, takes a deep dive into one spectacular working ranch in Wyoming. Her stunning photographs provide an outsider's perspective into the American West spirit and its enduring strength that is alive and well in today's contemporary world.
The ranch was named after a creek which runs through the property, Wagonhound Creek, which received its name due to the number of wagons on the nearby Oregon Trail that, while crossing the creek, broke their hounds, the part of the wagon that connects the tongue and axle. The Wagonhound owners took the reins of the historic ranch in 1999.
The book includes an inspirational and powerful foreword by Gretel Ehrlich, as well as other heartfelt contributions by historians Jeremy M. Johnston, Don Reeves and a new poem written for this title by legendary Russell "Red" Steagall, plus many others.
Building upon the success of her two recent bestselling titles, West: The American Cowboy (2019), and American Cowboys (2021), renowned French photographer Anouk Masson Krantz captivates as she takes us on a deep dive into the private world of Wagonhound in Wyoming, one of America's largest and most revered working ranches, spanning more than 300,000 acres.
Anouk's exquisite fine art photography offers a rare window into the cowboy ranching culture and land stewardship of this historic ranch and the breathtaking American West, and highlights the rancher's continued pioneering strength and enduring spirit in today's contemporary world from an outsider's perspective.
Earning wide acclaim for her large-scale contemporary photography, Anouk's work has been praised internationally and has appeared in prominent galleries and museums.
