Salton Sea

Broken link

Photographs by Mark Tucker, evoking his journey to the Salton Sea, the largest lake in California. It’s a terminal lake (meaning that it has no outlets) and it is set in the desert. Mark Tucker introduces it like this:

My hunch was that it was mostly populated by retirees, witness protection candidates, and guys running from the IRS. There’s an eerie quiet that settles over this entire area; just the sound of the wind, and the heat beating down on your shoulders. Like a place that man walked away from, or a likely place for a David Lynch film. So, I’m also trying to communicate the feeling of this place through the color palette, and the lack of contrast, and the overall brightness and glare that seems ever present. [from the website].
