Every now and then I feel the hard pull of the American Southwest deserts. Usually in the Spring or Fall - hey, I'm not crazy...I sure don't want to be photographing in 100+ heat! These images comprise primarily the natural studies I made; also view Blister Bomb and Heavy Transport for man-made inspirations.

This group of images was photographed mainly during two trips. A run around Arizona backroads in 1997 and then in and around Joshua Tree Nat'l Park in 2003. I have never shot this kind of subject in color, preferring the urgency that black and white gives these subject matters. Many of these images were done using my camera of choice for these ventures: the lowly medium format plastic Holga.
