A Year on the Road: Arriving

read
Life often lies in the journey rather than the destination

Through my years of travel, I have come to understand that at its core, life is a series of departures and arrivals, both physical and emotional. The trip is not about the destination, but about the journey so they say. I cannot think of a better entrance to a city than racing forward toward a distant skyline on a highway or flying over the terrain before officially arriving. This is a photo......read more

A Year on the Road: Painted Desert

JB Snyder paints a love letter to the Navajo Nation

I was lucky enough to encounter JB Snyder in Phoenix, Arizona as an artistic force in the vibrant art scene. His mesmerizing graffiti murals in kaleidoscope colors grace many buildings along Roosevelt Street, better known as "Roosevelt Row". Often likened to stained glass windows, each piece has become a landmark downtown.  So it's no wonder that when I was asked to document JB......read more

A Year on the Road: Cold Mountain

Slowing down to the speed of the season

I became entranced with the mountains as a child and I often find myself venturing into the forest for the heaviest part of any season. It’s there that I always find the densest, purest form of nature. Trees and whole mountainsides showcase the cold stillness of winter collectively in a deafening silence. In a world that moves so fast, slow down to the speed of the season if only for a......read more

A Year on the Road: Three Men in a Boat

A gentlemen's boating adventure in Cape Cod

It all started with a conversation and a spur of the moment trip to Cape Cod. Late into the night, over a few stiff Manhattans, a group of close friends and I planned the next morning. We would begin early; earlier than late-night scotch and revelry typically allows. Bleary eyed but excited we arrived on the shore a few hours later, greeted by high tide and a thin mist of rain. I started shooting......read more

A Year on the Road: Fog on England Green

read
Stills from a long country walk, suspended in mist

This photo series follows a path I took through an English countryside in early Spring. In the quiet afternoon, engulfed by a thick fog, I roamed the small village that three generations of my family have called home.  Seeing the playground where I used to spend summer afternoons as a child now suspended in a suspenseful, heavy mist, it looked as if it was an empty stage just waiting to be......read more

A Year on the Road: The Lone Star State

Getting lost is easy in Texas

On March 2, the state of Texas celebrated its Independence Day, a victory that marked the boundaries of a state so proud and so grand in scale that everything really is bigger there. Having spent 8 years of my childhood living everywhere from the Valley on the border of Mexico to Dallas, I can definitely vouch for that as well as proudly declare my complex love for Texas.  In the spirit of......read more

A Year on the Road: Over the Border

read
Exploring Agua Prieta, Mexico after dark

Like many people, I have an innate fascination with international borders --  what they represent and what they separate. Perhaps driving across the border into Mexico at dusk for a scenic drive isn't the best idea, but I have had worse.  These images were collected through an evening in March 2013 across the US border at Douglas, AZ. Once across the border, I took off rambling through......read more

A Year on the Road: Where No One Goes

Portraits of a modern ruin by Emily Caldwell

"Something went wrong." said the lonely trailer.   Along the dry creek bed and weed choked rocks lay remnants of a past life- bottles and metal thrown around like wreckage after a tornado.   Brenda and I could see the trailer from the desolate highway we were rambling down. From a distance it all screamed horror stories and tv dramas. Still, drawn to it like two moths to a giant......read more

A Year on the Road: Singh Farms

Hidden in an Arizona mesquite grove lies a fertile forest

If you thought no food ever grows in the desert, then allow me to share with you a place that will change your mind. You wouldn't know if from the freeway, but just off the 101 in Phoenix, Arizona there lies one of the most extraordinary farms the desert has ever seen. After I heard someone say it was the farm of their dreams, I knew I had to see it for myself.  A bustling farmer's market......read more
