Theo Stroomer ~ July 2013


Theo Stroomer is photographing the people of the North Fork Valley in Colorado. This is a rural area not dominated by ski resorts but by farmers, hunters, hippies and miners. As some rural ways of life disappear, it becomes important to remember what this community brings to discussions of Colorado’s state identity.

“Since its settlement more than a hundred years ago, the North Fork has been defined by a traditional western ideal: to live and let live.”
