Todd Klassy

Raised on a farm, Todd feels at home living and working in rural Montana, actively fulfilling his life-long dream to photograph the back roads and hidden corners of the American West.

An admirer of iconic symbols of American culture, Todd spends most of his time making photographs of the remote, anonymous landmarks that dot Montana's landscape. His photographs especially show his fondness for eastern Montana where he finds many of the old abandoned homesteads, schoolhouses and grain elevators that distinguish many of his photos.

Todd also spends much of his time photographing Montana's cowboys, Native American Indians and farmers, whose culture and traditional way of life is threatened by the hands of time. In 2014 Todd was distinguished as the 19th "Montana Treasured Artist" by Montana's Secretary of State.

His photos have been published by American Cowboy, Montana Magazine, National Geographic, People, Popular Photography, Sports Illustrated, Western Horseman and in many other magazines, newspapers, websites, and books.
