Brendon Burton Creates a Cinematic Exploration of the “New American West”

When we hear of the American West, we immediately associate it with its landscapes and distinct culture. Portland-based Brendon Burton, however, explores what he considers as the “New American West” with a recent series of cinematic conceptual work called Western Gothic. According to Brandon, his work is focused on “studying the side effects of cultural isolation and the concept of liminal space.” Part of this is a fascination for vacant and decaying places which was sparked by his childhood on a farm in an isolated community, For the curious, liminal space is, at the simplest sense, a place of transition and where waiting often takes place. Western Gothic is indeed teeming with these elements, both in the setting and the visual narrative housed by each photo.
