Although from Massachusetts, Ian Boll has been living in Colorado for nine years after moving to Boulder to pursue a photography degree from CU.
Since completion, he has spent much of the summer months exploring and documenting the uninhabited aesthetic of the western United States. He enjoys traveling mostly by truck on back roads, either camping or sleeping inside his vehicle.
This past summer he made a trip to Oregon and back, this time on his motorcycle, sleeping in a hammock and making photographs along the way. He has long been attracted to the expansive west as a subject, this being in stark contrast to the thickly settled east coast where he grew up.
Ian is a snowboarder and filmmaker during the winter months where his board and camera have taken him all over the US, Canada and as far as Kazakhstan.
The photographs in this series were all taken in May 2015 with a Hasselblad camera and 50 ISO black & white film, in and just outside of Canyonlands National Park. Throughout his 15 years of shooting photographs he still prefers the analog process over digital.

It's hard to believe its been 6 months!
We are so grateful for the customers that continue to come by to discover (and re-discover) VOSS everyday. Honestly,we have been so busy keeping new art, furniture and jewelry in the store that there is too little time to keep up with our blog. Many customers are asking for in-house consults. I am happy to say that I have some great new people manning the store and am now able to get away for a bit and do what I love (besides shopping)- interior design! I am making appointments so give a call 720 460 0463.
As summer starts in Boulder Colorado (and briefly stops due to non-stop rain and even May snow), we are gearing up with design that can stay in or move outdoors. See pix of new beachy chic Moroccan bags, handwoven hammocks, sarongs and summertime jewelry, including Taylor Kinney's ethereal necklaces (as shown in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit this year) that weekends anywhere.
For inside, summer cries out color. Our super bright rugs, throws and furry neon orange and purple pillows are the needed splash. Our baby stuff fits that bill too.
We welcome visiting South Fork artist Carl R. King. His heroic scaled multi-paneled compositions or smaller easel-sized work, in his words, "creates a mosaic of form and color - elevating everyday scenes into a surreal, dreamlike world of soft personal expression." His canvases appeal to lovers of contemporary abstraction as well as those whose inclinations tilt toward traditional realism. His paintings will be on view in the pop-up gallery through June.
Come see all the new art and artists on our walls. We will continue to stay open late Thursday, Friday and Saturday eves. You can also shop the website and join our mailing list for the latest news and updates.
Until next time....Sondra Voss

First of all, a huge thank you to our VOSS Art + Home fans (especially those taking the time to read this blog!). These first few months in the store have been wonderful. We love meeting all of you and we are listening to your fantastic suggestions.
January was great for our artists, and honestly it was hard keeping their work on the walls! (Nothing makes me happier than supporting these gifted people). So come and see what new paintings are up and on display.
About this month's Pop Up Shop. Populated with the work of 4 dynamic women artists, the shop will first feature Kristen Larson Moore, a Pittsburgh native and very popular Colorado artist. The second two weeks will be shared by "Lilany" a group of three female artists. "Lilany" will be hosting live painting events, so make sure to join us on social media to get the details on dates and times.
February also brings five new jewelry lines; many, many gorgeous house plants and planters; numerous decor objects, and even more lighting design pieces.
VOSS is also growing our baby line. Check out these cute blankets that just arrived...
Finally,we are re-stocking and filling the store with new pieces (and most popular sell outs) everyday. So check back often to see what is new and what is back. About half of our products are available on the website, so if you see something in the blog, VOSS Art + Home website, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, just call the store 720 460 0463 and we will be happy to ship it to you.
Until next time!
