THE WORK OF MAX BURKHALTER

March 10th 2018 — April 30th 2018

Opening Reception: SATURDAY, MARCH 10th 2018 | 6-9:30P

SouthWest is a series of photographs made in West Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Southern California. Made on multiple trips since 2015, the series serve as a visual impression into the raw, shifting landscape, and ever changing light across the different regions. The experience of solitude in photographing these open areas lends itself to the solitude reflected in the photographs themselves. Avoiding people and just showing civilizations imprint on the land, the photos also present a back and forth between development and a deeply established terrain.
