The concept was re-imagined after visiting a small town called Utopia Texas and had breakfast at the Lost Maple Cafe. Inside they had several old west photos that decorated the cafe. I feel in love with the nostalgia of the images. I sat on the idea for two years. I happened to have a few wardrobe stylist friends that helped me put this together. We shot at the J. Loraine Ghost town that’s out in Manor Texas. It had flash flooded the night before. It was a major challenge to wrangle 15 people, 4 horses in 3 feet of mud across a 2 mile old movie set. I used Joseph Campbell’s story archetypes when developing my characters. My intent was to make the images look like they came out of a western film.
