"Manifest" nasce mentre Kristine Potter lavorava in remote aree lungo il versante occidentale del Colorado tra il 2012 e il 2015, e riprende alcune precedenti indagini della fotografa sulla mascolinità e sull'American Soldier, qui declinate su un archetipo parallelo, quello dell'American Cowboy. Manifest non funge da documentario, ma piuttosto da una ricodifica del mito del West, del territorio e dei suoi uomini. E' allo stesso tempo fantasia e realtà.

Created while working in remote areas along the Western slope of Colorado between 2012 and 2015, Kristine Potter builds on her previous investigations of masculinity and the American Soldier, here fixing her gaze on a parallel archetype, the American Cowboy. Uncovering a world far more formidable and disorienting than the canon of traditional western landscape photography had previously detailed, Potter encounters men who sparingly dot the terrain, seemingly both tethered to, and in divergence with, the myth that precedes them. Manifest does not act as a documentary, but rather as a re-coding of the western myth, the territory and its men, it is both fantasy and reality. Weaving body and landscape, the book lays open the seduction of the West, the opportunities it promises, the disorientation of altitude, and the confrontation of persistent danger.
