Joshua Tree National Park has always been one of my favorite places in the world to make photographs. It’s only a three hour drive from where I grew up and the light is always amazing there. In college, most of my final year work was made there. The landscape is like another planet. Driving south through the park from the 29 Palms Entrance is my usual way on starting, but this time we drove in at the Northwest entrance, zig-zagging southeast through the terrain.

We took a bus to the west side of the island to find the tomb of my grandfather, my father’s father. The plot is hidden away in an expanse of farmland and wind machines. This part of the island is surreal; bordered by sea on one side and volcanic soil on the other but with wind turbines stretched out along the horizon. Wild; it all felt like a film location. We didn’t end up finding the tomb that day but the trip was worth it for the pictures. The other half of this series will be posted tomorrow.
