The Buffalo Project

This series was first inspired by the incredible album by *shels called "Plains of the Purple Buffalo." Sweeping nostalgia, longing, and restlessness are all throughout this record, which is actually a concept album based on "The Neverending Story." I think these emotions are also wrapped up in the Bison, which has always been a symbol of the untamed West, a lost world. I often long for a past I’ve only heard of, dreaming of a simpler, wilder life and unsullied earth. But the reality is that we have effectively destroyed our access to Eden, and now we must keep moving, sustained by the hope that we will one day be taken out of our self-made exile. I find myself fascinated by this beast and all that it embodies. This project is a tribute to their story of resilience and hope.
