The bison is a symbol of the American soul. Now the buffalo returns. And this is not nostalgia. The bison is a real existing and socio-cultural phenomenon. It is a current political issue in the dispute between cattle breeders and the bison lobby. Buffalo Ballad is a visual search of clues to the mind and myth of an American icon. In the magical black and white images the Bison is transformed into a real vision.
