A Year on the Road: The Lone Star State

read
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

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

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

A Year on the Road: Cheese Pilgrimage

Curating a cheese plate on the road through Italy

Many trips to Italy simply begin and end in Rome. Knowing that this would leave me wanting more, I let Rome be my appetizer and ventured into the Italian countryside for the remaining courses. This is the story of my journey to find the perfect cheese plate. Encrusted within the craggy folds of the Gran Sasso Mountains lie the Middle Age stone villages and castles of the province of......read more

A Year on the Road: September Summer

Burning the last days of the season onto 35mm film

Too often, the magic of 35mm film is lost to a dim, crunchy image. Instead of being printed and enjoyed with friends, recounting stories, they are likely to be looked at twice before being sequestered in a murky corner of a backup hard drive. And rather than a single moment burned into a square of film, these images exist in numbers and code. This is not to say that I don’t use digital......read more

A Year on the Road: White Sands, NM

read
At play in the world's largest sandbox

White Sands National Monument in New Mexico has always been a place of wonder to me, both before and after I visited it. It is a desert, not of sand, but of glimmering white gypsum crystals forming 275 square miles of towering dunes, making it the largest concentration of gypsum in the world. Exiting the road, I drove until the concrete faded into white. Cameras in hand, I started climbing and......read more

A Year on the Road: Prinzessinnen-Garten

This community garden is the green lung of urban Berlin

Imagine a modern city where natural resources are protected and conserved, food and inspiration are shared commodities, and every spare urban space is used to let biodiversity and fresh food thrive. This is the future that Marco Clausen and Robert Shaw have imagined for Berlin, Germany. They were so inspired by Cuba’s “agricultura urbana” that they broke ground at Moritzplatz in......read more

A Year on the Road: Above the San Juans

read
A misty flight over Washington's emerald islands

For 4 years now, I have been dreaming of exploring the 450 islands that make up the San Juans. I knew this year marked my moment to finally visit as they have just been declared a National Monument. In Obama's words, the islands are “a refuge of scientific and historic treasures and a classroom for generations of Americans.”  Home to bald eagles, orca whales, harbor......read more
