Telephone Poles. Salton Avenue, Salton City, California. 2019.
Earlier this month I returned to the Salton Sea for the second time this year. When I was there in March I felt, for the first time, that I was almost able to touch the ghosts that I have always perceived in this part of California. Wherever I went, they followed; they were nearly within grasp. This visit I was more grounded but still seemed to step in and out of the real world and the world of dreams and apparitions.
These are a few of the images that came from this trip.
