The Photo Novella
The Photo Novella is a Documentary project in progress and should be viewed as such. The photographs consist of my family and the desert landscapes of an Arizona border community. Although the subjects and sites in the photographs are also referenced in the text photographs, they are not intended to be viewed as direct illustrations of the text photographs.
The text photographs in the Photo Novella came before the images. They were created because I did not have a camera to photograph the event described or I thought that a camera was not the appropriate tool to use at the time the event occurred. The text photographs begin in the middle or near the end but seldom at the beginning of the event.
