the crossing


Crossing the Sonoran Desert, within a mile of the United States/Mexico border, my thoughts drifted back and forth between the stark, lonesome beauty this desert is known for and the realization that humans, for hundreds of years, have been crossing its almost completely barren and waterless landscape in search of a better life.


The Crossing is a photo essay illustrating my three day journey and encounters with not only the desert but with the Border Patrol there to monitor it and those who attempted to cross it illegally.


More coming soon.
