Ghost Town - Endless South
Photograph - Panorama
One of the most rewarding gifts of the desert are endless views in every direction. The sense of freedom is unequaled. This is the view South from the Ghost Town of Rhyolite.
My 2008 residency at the Goldwell Open Air Museum's Red Barn Center in Rhyolite Nevada, all started as an adventure without much of a plan. For once, I wanted to see what I would do if I had nothing else to do but to make art, and I wanted to see what the place would inspire without pre-thinking (over-thinking) the process of making images.
With open mind and open views all around me, I set out to build my guiding compass. I could start off every day by building a little of the compass, then head off in that direction and let the muses do the rest. I did just that, resulting in the most delightful unstructured routine possibly of my adult life.
The Ghost Town series are photographs that I took while walking around and searching for references for my woodcuts. The desert really yields some awesome images.
