Tomas van Houtryve, Lines and Lineage
With his Lines and Lineage series, the photographer wants to draw attention to a blind spot in U.S. American history: the period before 1848, when Mexico ruled the American West. Because there are virtually no photographic testimonies from that time, Houtryve attempts to fill the gap in his own particular way.
Tomas van Houtryve was born in Belgium and works as a conceptual artist, photographer and author. He has received various international awards. His project will appear in book format in September 2019.
