Jan Boles’s silver print montage series depicts landscapes that reveal the artist’s interest in time, history, perspective, and our ideas about the pastoral Western landscape.

The pieces were created from 1989 - 1996 (predating digital photography). They include regional sites of interest such as: the Caldwell Depot, crops in Canyon County, the Snake River, and the old Idaho Penitentiary.

The montages are created by taking a series of individual photographs shot from the same vantage point facing different directions. Then the photos are hand pieced together and developed into silver prints through a darkroom process. These unique panoramic observations are both a technically inventive photographic process and a remarkable vision of these rural sites.
