Rock. Water. Tree.

Sandi Wheaton


Through Wheaton’s images, figure and ground become one within the rocky terrain of the Mojave Desert, California. The eternal dance of geology and weather naturally sculpts the ground into abstract figures, animating the stillness of the scene with anthropomorphic imagery. Wheaton pays homage to the surreal landscapes that inspired her photographic career with this black-and-white portrait of Joshua Tree National Park, featuring silver gelatin darkroom prints from the now obsolete Kodak HIE infrared film.
