Edge of town

1996
Darkroom Photomontage

Description

Somewhere at 'the edge of town', civilization as we know it fades away in to a vast desert space.

The building at the left was photographed in some barely alive town in Arizona. The outline of Native American ruins at the top/left is outside Flagstaff, AZ. The desert space at lower right is somewhere in the Antelope Valley, southern CA.

"Dust to dust, ashes to ashes..."

Humans are too (self)destructive and greedy, eventually it will all collapse, and the planet will be happier for it. No more tract developments in land that barely supports snakes, jack rabbits, and coyotes.
