Narrative:; This photograph was a spontaneous behind the scenes shot taken early one winter morning high up in Canyonlands National Park, Utah.; The cowboys we had on set were simply keeping warm, not playing to the camera. When I looked at my camera files later, I realised that we; had something very strong and our galleries were very keen for the work to be released and shown to the public in America and Europe.; This was never our intent, and it is the first time this situation has arisen in ten years.; The grandeur of the American West is well known and well photographed. In our minds, stunning landscapes should complement the shot,; not be the shot. Layered narratives have become core to my style, we like to make a frame sweat. This image is certainly a validation of that; approach.; 99% of my released work is printed in monochrome, but this print works better in colour. I looked back at some of the other work we have; released in colour and they all have one thing in common; my shots with tigers, orangutans and now this image all have the colour orange in; them. Orange is not a normal colour in my work, but when it features, a colour print is often preferable. A black and white print simply; doesn't cope well with orange.; On this occasion, the orange flames from the fire are such a core component of the story that to print this in monochrome would dumb; down the narrative. I am all for the reductive qualities of monochrome, but we always want to tell the best possible story.; There is a lot going on in this image and we know it emotionally connects with those in America drawn to the lore of the West.
