Kurt’s first cowboy book, now long out of print and one of the most sought-after and prized collector’s books on the market today. Published by Twelve Trees Press in 1985 to immediate acclaim, After Barbed Wire was the first book to present the cowboy genre in a new light, stripped of historical reference and cliche. With minimal text by the photographer, the images are reproduced in art-book fashion in rich sheet-fed gravure.
