The series "outw" has emerged from the encounter between Christian and Lutz family Davis. On behalf of a Swiss film production company he stayed for a visit in the Alvord Desert in Oregon and found interest in the life of the Davis family, which is involved in raising livestock. It is the story of meeting with Paul, the supreme boss of the operation, and his administrator, the Cowboy Mike. It is also the story of their 3500 cattle, which are spread over an area of 160,000 hectares, and the story of Tony, the wife of the chief, and their five children. The photographer sat down for two years (between 2006 and 2008) deal intensively with the family: In this period he visited the family and the Alvord Desert, in that universe of modern cowboys, four times. The picture series shows us the Davis family and how they as cowboys in the western United States lives and works. The boots, the plaid shirts and the Westernhüte that they wear, use clichés. But Christian Lutz looks deeper. He brings us closer to them in the seclusion of the desert, living family, which is to maintain itself against a hostile environment needs, but also full of enthusiasm for their work. The images that have captured the everyday life of the family, realistic, sometimes even brutal. The life that leads the family, appear compared with the life that lead most of the other in America, anachronistic. What the photographer has put on especially, is the co-existence, the simultaneous juxtaposition of this American original with the modern American society. In this series of photographs of the original Christian Lutz questioned America, frozen in its own myths. The pictures show exactly the point of intersection between an imaginary picture of the American West and what actually is. The real issue, as it hides behind the Davis family and their activities. In the pictures simple, beautiful, essential and traditional moments are recorded, without succumbing to a particular cliché to cliché that of an America that is, seems to have stopped in time.
