From the LIFE archives, another side of famed photographer Bill Eppridge.

After covering some of the heaviest moments in the nation’s recent history Eppridge was due for a change of pace. ¬†He headed West.

“Spending months out there in those vast spaces, photographing mustangs and the people who live and work there, among the horses – that saved me…. Bobby Kennedy’s death shook me to the core. ¬†Getting out there with [writer] Jackson, traveling that old landscape in a four-wheel-drive pickup truck, helped to heal me, in a way, and got me back to the world.”

Couldn’t agree more.
