“It’s early in the morning in the Ozarks and the fog snakes its way between the hills in these highly descriptive yet mysterious photographs by Matthew Genitempo. This photographer looks at men who lead isolated lives in their cabins and caves. Possibly the men are hunters or observers of nature; one maintains a collection of obsolete videotapes but mostly little is told to us about these men or their activities. In one nocturnal scene, some hunched white creature scuttles across a vague white terrain – is it a phantasm or taxidermy specimen? A cat on high guards over an axe that’s jimmied in place to keep a trailer door from opening. The men light their fires and the smoke rises up to join the fog.”
