For Want of Water

For Want of Water - MojaveIn a place where the balance of earth and water can best be seen in the fossil record and the tracings of once watered paths along the desert floor, for want of water, we find the yin and yang of life in the desert… An exhausted lake bed transforms into a salty white flat and curves away into the Mojave while water from a seemingly enigmatic source follows a thin curving line toward the California coast. Though their physical relationship seems out of scale, they represent a delicate balance between man’s need for resources and that which the earth can provide as its environment perpetually changes.
