“In Erv Schroeder's recent photographs the viewer is treated to a meditation on the mysteries of the West through an intensive gaze into its rock formations. The diminutive prints are nothing less than gem-like in their rich tonalities and truly unique perspectives on what makes this landscape such a potent subject for photographers.”
