High & Dry is an ongoing project to document the many faces of the California’s magnificent deserts and the people who live there. With images and words, we will take stock of the current landscape, focusing on its relationship to human activity and exploring remnants of past enterprise to inform our future uses. With regular 'Dispatches' we hope to engage you in conversation at a time when a surge to develop renewable energies will, for good or bad, indelibly transform this valuable public resource.
