This is an ode to Rick Hunter
This water tower in Death Valley was built into a hillside to keep the water cool. The park employees call it 'Moon Tower' and like to climb up to it at night and hang out. When I climbed up to it, a park worker was sitting on top of it reading a book with a headlamp. not wanting to disturb him I hiked over to a nearby hill and starting making this image, adding light from camera right around the midpoint between the hills. During the exposure he turned off his headlamp, rolled onto his side and fell asleep - you can make out his outline at the top of the water tank. I felt like this is one of those moments where man and nature blend in together so harmoniously. One with he universe.
Hopefully, a different take of the popular Prada Marfa installation in Valentine, TX.
The truck and power lines signify two different modes of transportation, past and present.
I consider this the quintessential 'Hand' series image. What we build and where we built it says so much about us. Like the ancient pyramids, what would future archeologists be able to learn about our present civilization from this structure?
I am interested in the structures mankind creates, where they are created and what they say about us when we’re gone. I like to provoke questions about the nature of human attention and it’s interaction with the environment. Once the builders are gone how might these objects help us see ourselves differently?
