Tire Pile


Tire Pile, Barstow, CA

"There are things that are hard to photograph: guerrilla warfare, the end of an era, the meaning of a place. And there are things it is nearly impossible to photograph: the subtle workings of the human heart, the wandering paths desire and fury take, the bonds of love and blood that tie people together, the decisions that tear them apart, the way that most unprepossessing landscape can become home and thus speak of stories, traditions, gods that strangers cannot decipher from the rocks and streams." - Rebecca Solnit from River of Shadows

Lost Horizon


Mt. Sentinel, Clinton Montana

 One of my cautions to myself is that, in anytime that I think I can name what the elements are and how they fit together, that picture almost always fails. And the picture that I take so quickly that I barely know what I've seen, but with a sense of urgency is almost always more important. - Emmet Gowin
