Ghost Town is the result of Stephan Würth's lifelong fascination with the American West. Since moving to the United States from his native Germany, photographer Stephan Würth has been fascinated with the subliminal landscape of the American West and the isolation and freedom of infinite desert horizons. Würth captures this geographical romance with the new series Ghost Town. These photographs narrate the tale of three women as they journey through Nevada, where they soon find themselves stranded with a broken-down car on the side of a desolate road. What happens next is the story that unfolds in Ghost Town. Würth skillfully frames the essence of these women through his lens: capturing their boldly flirtatious and sensual nature along with their strength, intelligence and independence; this delicately balanced play between indulgence and restraint is what brings the pictures to life.
