Lost Horizons of the Mojave
Lost Horizons is a series of photo collages based on roadside images shot while traveling the backroads of the Mojave Desert between Palm Springs and Las Vegas. Infinite vistas of sand and mountains. Decaying ruins. Miles of Jurassic Joshua Tree forests. Trains heading east and west so long they slide into infinity. Desert life hides everywhere in plain sight, gulping the scant moisture brought in with the cool nights, displaying a spurt of life and growth either side of the hot months. The long summer days when life enters a state of suspended animation, coming alive at dusk, disappearing with the first hot rays of morning sunlight.
