SLC to LAS.
Posted on 8 Oct ’13
This was the canyon trip I had been waiting for. Driving around these areas is an awe-inspiring and spiritual experience and I wanted to document it all. The way the light falls on the rock faces, the glorious landscapes, the sheer scale of it all even the existence of higher/other being(s). I came on the road trip hoping to accomplish a lot. I wanted to photograph every canyon I visited in the perfect light and then wait around one until it was so dark just to photograph the milky way. And that’s where the problem started. Photography is a solitary activity and when you are with band of people especially with those who hate waiting around, you are pretty much in for a terrible time making photographs.
In addition to this, I was having a hard time in my head on what I wanted from this trip photographically. I wanted to be back here for so long that in the excitement, I never formed a coherent string of ideas to execute. Instead I was out there taking photographs randomly. As a result, I have a string of disconnected photographs which serve no purpose other than mere postcards.
I even gambled away some money hoping to change my fortunes in Sin City but it was not to be.
