DESERT LANDSCAPES

For a number of years I had the good fortune every winter to be invited to spend a week or two in southern California. This produced several hundred images, mostly in a panoramic format.

Apart from the temperature, the topography closely resembled that of my arctic experience and it seemed reasonable to employ some of the lessons learned there in dealing with this new space.

Of course, there is a significant difference between the two places in terms of the visible impact of human interventions. Both being deserts, however, the elemental qualities of the physical landscape highlight the effects of human presence in ways that would be less apparent in more lush environments.
