Love, Faith, Hope - Cinco, CA - 2010Love, Faith, Hope - Cinco, CA - 2010First printed: 2014

Like many images in this series, this composition features a layered series of focal planes, this one alternating between ordered and disorganized, natural and man-made environments, ending in a freeway, mountains and cloud-capped sky. The message "love, faith, hope" is seemingly lost on the former inhabitants of this abandoned home, but it speaks to the spirit required to survive challenging conditions in the remote, rural deserts of Southern California. Possible interpretations of this particular image are explored in greater depth in the articles listed below:
