I recently completed four days worth of field work throughout Western and Central Arizona and Southeastern California. Focusing on areas along the Colorado River, Joshua Tree National Park, Salton Sea, Imperial Valley, The Chocolate Mountains Gunnery and Bombing Range, Wickenburg, and Lake Havasu, I covered over 1450 miles, just me, my cameras, and my camping gear. This personal excursion led to the discovery of some exciting new ideas, concepts, and focuses for me to dwell on. It’s amazing to me, how an experience based around photographing an unknown subject matter without a specific project in mind can generate such a varying dynamic to work within for the near future. It feels like taking a fresh breath of air, and seeing a whole new set of roads to explore. I’m looking forward to seeing where some of these newfound concepts can possibly go and how some of the work created might help fuel some of my past interests as well.
