Lost in the West
These photographs are apart of an ongoing series of made in and around Palm Springs, California. Away from the gated communities, manicured palm trees, and pools are the communities of individuals who work either directly or indirectly to service these resort towns. These photographs are made in an attempt to capture the cultural ephemera of these communities, and reimagine the way in which one considers American leisure in its totality.
