Mondays often require an extra dose of motivation, which is why it’s a time we choose look to great artists of the past and present who have dedicated themselves to preserving stirring moments with their vision and their camera.
The American West is replete with scenes worth memorializing, and there’s no shortage of material to sift through when looking for that extra push needed to go out and conquer something of your own.
So each following Monday, we will compile a few of our favorite photographs — from the very well-known to the undiscovered. May you find that unique point of you you were looking for.
