There definitely isn’t much from our time in the desert we’ve missed. But the desert skies truly are incredible. In our six months in Joshua Tree, we were treated to some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets we’ve ever seen and the most glorious blanket of stars each night. While not ultimately for us, we can easily admit the desert can be a magical place. Los Angeles photographer Jordan Sullivan turned his lens to another California Desert, Death Valley, and the results are breathtaking.
In these large scale ( 24×36 & 40×60 ), small edition c-prints, Sullivan captures the delicate shifts in the desert’s cycle. Colors melt and merge into one another like watercolors. These are from the Water & Light sub series, yet easily be desert skies. That’s one of the most incredible things about the desert– there are few fences, few boundaries, everything drifts one into another, so that all the parts become the whole.
