Have a look at the full story, “Between Here & Nowhere” by our friend and f-11 member, Clay Lipsky in fraction magazine ( Issue 26 – May 2011
THIRD ANNIVERSARY ISSUE ) :
from the introduction of the series:
Between Here & Nowhere is an ongoing series based upon my years of exploring the deserts of Southern California. I was initially inspired to photograph the natural beauty beyond the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles, but my motivation soon changed once I ventured far enough. Upon discovering the rural decay scattered throughout the Mojave Desert to the toxic shores of the man-made Salton Sea, I became focused on documenting the ways mankind had altered this environment. In my eyes, I see the artifacts as symbols of man’s basic needs and the applied ambitions to flee urban trappings. However this story is not just about loss and the toll society takes on our surroundings. For every change we make to the landscape, nature will adapt to and ultimately the processes of entropy and evolution will thrive. In the end we are just visitors passing through and these are the marks we leave behind.
