"The garden of dust" by Bernard Plossu.
Everyone might not be attracted by this work but I find it interesting as it pictures the American West in an unpretentious way. Prints are not small, very small, usual landscape tricks ((very)wide angle lens, heavy filtering (#25 Wratten and al.), contrasty prints) are absent, just rocks, plants (sometimes) and the sky. It is rather minimalist as if B. Plossu wanted to remove objects from the frame where most of the photographer would like to add elements to the pictures.
To me, it is very relaxing, as if someone would quietly hike across Monument Valley or Canyonland NP and take very simple and natural shots. No rush, no stress, just the photographer and the landscape. This approach seems to be easy but it is more a state of mind than anything else.
