In 2006, Michael Crouser took the first photograph in his mountain ranch project. Ten years later he took the last image to complete Mountain Ranch, the book that grew from the project. He calls the book “an exploration of the disappearing world of cattle ranching in the mountains of Colorado,” but it’s more than that: it’s a story of the ties and traditions of families, and a story of an America that was, struggling to still be.

Nicolas Bruno was 15 years old when everything changed. His restful sleep became something very different, something called sleep paralysis. Conscious, his eyes open, he was unable to move, unable to stop the terrifying dreams and hallucinations in which he was pursued and tormented.
