I have always been intrigued by the American southwest landscapes. I love the sandstone monoliths and how small and insignificant it makes me feel. It is in this "Impermanent" landscape that I have begun to explore deeper, not just with landscape photography, but with other impermanent beauties, human figures.
I've explored the buttes, canyons and sand dunes of the American southwest, and know some of the more mesmerizing, other-worldly landscapes of this classic area. I wanted to bring my models into this landscape, where it felt isolated, surreal and of course beautiful. For each model, we camped, hiked and spent 1-2 days working with the natural light of the desert. This is a three-part series, focusing on the "high" vistas, "middle" sand dunes and the "low" graphic slot canyons.
The results have been wonderful. I have received accolades, and magazines have jumped all over the images. I am currently looking for a gallery host large format prints. I'm hoping this contest can get me in front of the right people.
