For this month's portfolio, Arizona Highways Magazine combined the work of two of their most talented photographers: Scott Baxter, the artist behind the 100 Years, 100 Ranchers project they featured in 2011 and 2012, and Joel Grimes, a longtime contributor to Arizona Highways.
Their objective with the piece was to capture real people in their real worlds, without the Hollywood stereotypes of Wyatt Earp and Geronimo. As you'll see, both Scott and Joel did just that.
For his part, Scott used a large-format camera. He then developed the film using the palladium process, a technique known for the archival quality of the prints it produces. Meanwhile, Joel used 4x5 and 6x7 cameras to make his images.
