Bathed In Fire

Bathed In Fire

The destructive force that burned through areas of Arizona and New Mexico earlier this year scorched the land my husband grew up on in the White Mountains of Arizona. The Wallow fire didn’t take family photo albums or ranch structures but it changed the landscape so we can only visit scars within our lifetime. Bathed in Fire captures imagery, wood and soot from Rudd Creek, Riggs Mountain and the brome fields at Sipe White Mountain Wildlife Area. The work is about what is precious, natural and unnatural.
