The desert southwest is where photography became real for me. I spent a summer in southern Utah away from home around 19 - the goal was to dedicate myself to the camera and see if I could prove to myself it was something I could do just for me… without the support of friends, family or a girlfriend at the time back home, I sorted exiled myself. I guess you could say I was looking for proof that it was truly my “path”.
It was nearly 110F + every day that summer and I mostly hid out in slot canyons searching for cooler temps. This recent image brought my back to that experience.
