Scenes from the Secret Show, a midnight concert held in Terlingua’s Church of Santa Inez, featuring an acoustic performance from the McMercy Family Band. The show coincided with the Terlingua Green Scene, a festival of art, film, gardening and sustainable living strategies. I’m currently working on a long-form profile of the homesteaders and off-the-grid artists behind the Green Scene, soon to be published in Arthur Magazine.

Fresh material from my most recent trip to Far West Texas is now up on the Arthur Magazine site. Click here to read “Dread Zeppelins: Letter from West Texas,” a short photo essay about the the U.S. Air Force’s tethered aerostat radar system — aka “the drug blimp” — based outside of Marfa, TX.
Arthur Magazine is featuring two of my Kelso Dunes photos as header art. Sweet.
Into The Green’s photographs from the full moon expedition to the Kelso Dunes are part of the second “Carnival of the Arid,” a survey of blogs featuring writing and photography from desert regions, coordinated by Coyote Crossing’s Chris Clark. This edition includes images of Andalucian Spaghetti Western settings, nearly abandoned remote-desert subdivisions and field notes from a birding expedition to Kuwait, just for starters. Check it out at Coyote Crossing.
