My work centers on my passion for exploring consciousness in nature through photography, architecture, and movement. The images show the movement of water in real time as it reacts to different stimuli both physical and metaphysical. It is an overwhelming feeling when you realize that you are looking at water’s blueprint for life.
SoundWaves in Water
"I took these photographs without a clear sense of where they might end up. A re-issue of the Joshua Tree album 30 years hence was certainly not part of my thinking. I guess I took them because I felt that this experience and this landscape and this moment in time ought to be remembered, and possibly at some point shared."
I don't know what it is exactly that I find so fascinating, amusing, romantic, nostalgic about the countless variations of intersection between the western sky and the miles and miles of utility lines that across my view. It's something about the towering palms and the raw hewn poles standing as kin, the knotted junctions of wire and hardware impossibly entwined, and moments of meeting- buildings, branch and frond. This is the interconnected airborne architecture of the Los Angeles skyline. It is impossible to escape and I find it endlessly inspiring. - Morleigh Steinberg
