Mundare is the little town on the Canadian Prairies where Kyler Zeleny was born and raised; a community of just over 900 with strong Ukrainian roots.
Against the backdrop of a boundless horizon, Zeleny interweaves his photographs with documents and archival images, superimposing them on the written pages of the community’s history book to draw up an alternative and personal history.

Bury Me in the Back Forty is the result of a decade of research, it draws the portrait of a small plains town like many – with its own vicissitudes, heroes and secrets – nonetheless, the story of a place that changes with the passage of time, complex and troubled, unique and yet universal, deserves to be told, and Zeleny does so with a careful, sharp and penetrating gaze.
A well-structured sequence and design help make Bury Me in the Back Forty a wonderful book, a breath of fresh air in the vein of the American West.
