In April of 2009 I traveled to Terlingua, a remote border settlement in the Chihuahuan Desert of Far West Texas, to spend time with the DIY homesteaders and off-the-grid outsiders who were getting down together for the first annual Terlingua Green Scene. I’m in the process of publishing my account of the wild times I had there in Arthur Magazine.
Read the first installment, “No Winners, Only Survivors,” at the Arthur Magazine website. More chapters are on their way, so stay tuned.
For more of my reporting and photography about the Marfa “drug blimp” and other paranoid visions from this unique region of the Lone Star state, check out “Dread Zeppelins: Letter from West Texas,” also in Arthur Magazine.
Two more of my photos — from Joshua Tree’s Squaw Tank and Ralston Peak in the Desolation Wilderness — are featured as headers on the Arthur Magazine website. Color me “stoked.”
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.
Tim Dundon is California’s self-proclaimed “Guru of Doo Doo,” a visionary compost wizard living in a tropical forest that lies between Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains in the unincorporated community of Altadena. I profiled Dundon — an extremely knowledgeable, endlessly charming and slightly paranoid man — for the December 2007 issue of Arthur Magazine. “The Sodfather” ran with absolutely gorgeous photography by Eden Batki — the above photos are my own.
The original version of the story can be found on the Arthur Magazine website. An earlier draft of the story that includes extra material regarding Dundon’s paranoid fantasies regarding the Illuminati, the Moonies, et al, can be found after the jump.
My photographs from “Honest Work: Life on a Humboldt Cannabis Farm During Harvest Season” by Dave Reeves, are now available online in the December 2008 issue of Arthur Magazine. Read it online here. Download the complete issue as a PDF here.
