I’m Exploring the American Southwest.

Untapped, raw, and exotic in it’s barren, almost alien beauty – the American southwest was once the land of thousands of indigenous Native Americans. It’s beauty only beholden to the masses once the American federal government sent a survey lead by Lt. George M. Wheeler.

He photographed them as they were, sans tribal costume and western primitive stereotype. Why…

The Grand Canyon to Zion National Park, Navajo medicine men to the best tacos this side of the Rio Grande. Come with me as I explore the American southwest.
