Dude Ranches Through the Eyes of Fritz Henle

As evidenced by previous posts, we’ve turned up some amazing photographs in the CB&Q advertising albums. In my thoroughly enjoyable examination of the “Miscellaneous Ranches” album, I found some gorgeous prints by prolific freelance photographer Fritz Henle, whose storied career included work for Life, Harper’s Bazaar, and Town & Country. A proponent of the large format camera, Henle produced elegant, artistic images spanning the genres of photojournalism, travel, and portrait photography. His captivating dude ranch images convey a sense of wildness, beauty, and adventure, and nearly 70 years later make me wish I had been there.
