About the Photography
I have visited National Parks and have walked an ocean beach. I have hiked the Rocky Mountains and have lived in the heart of a city with millions of people and skyscrapers that are triumphs of modern man. But I’ve yet to see anything, anywhere as beautiful as a horizon uncluttered, a frosted fence line or a herd of cattle serenely grazing in fog. My soul is scattered along the dirt roads of the Midwest. As I drive these minimum maintenance paths of gravel, sand and dirt I am constantly finding bits of it caught in the corn stubble, nailed to the weathered barn wood, pooled under the rusted metal of last generation’s tractors.
I am from rural America. I am fortunate enough to have direct access to life as few Americans know it- slow, dull and lacking in polish. Each time I lift a camera my hope is that I can convey to busy, shiny, exciting metropolitan America how much I appreciate what we have to ourselves out here.
About the Photographer
Chris Pultz was born and raised in small, rural KS towns where he spent much of his youth outdoors. He picked up a camera for the first time in Jr. High as a yearbook photographer, and set it down again as life began filling up with important things like sports, cars, girls and such. After attending Kansas State University, he moved to Denver, CO with his wife Rachel. The birth of his first daughter prompted him to pick up a camera again, and a passion for composing photographs that had lay dormant for ages was awoken.
Strong ties to the Midwest eventually brought Chris and his family to Lincoln, NE where they now reside. When the opportunity presents itself, in a moment he can grab his camera and be gone down the dirt roads in search of the next beautiful scene.
