About Cynthia Baldauf
It's amazing to me that I lived my first 40 years without knowing I would spend the second half of my life as a photographer. Being a photographer has allowed me to really see the world differently. I have always known that I loved horses, cowboys and the west, but seeing them through the lens has made them even more important to me.
With that importance came obligation - to tell the story correctly - to record history - to document. The obligation grew when my husband and I discovered a wonderful place.......The Big Hole Valley in Montana. For us, it's been like the story of Alice in Wonderland when she first went into the rabbit hole. Another life exists there.
Most of this website is a tribute to the wonderful, generous friends we have met in the West. Thank you for allowing us into your lives and letting me tell your story. I can only hope I've done it justice.
