Travelling through Arizona I noticed so much desolation, abandoned structures, disconnected souls… which prompted me to stop and listen, I’m fascinated with connecting sound to the visual medium.
How do you visually capture the sound
of desolation…this is my attempt….

The transparency of the girl shows a dissociativeness with the landscape.
Is she there only in spirit? Not only until one is heard completely do they connect totally with their environment.

    The tonal presentation along with the arid dry backdrop, creates a superb visual and artistic drama.
    Agree with the above… bursting with narrative!
