Passage of the Ancients
Chaco Culture National Park, New Mexico
The crumbling walls of this ancient pueblo reflecting the sinking sun lend a different color temperature to each room, conveying that feeling of walking through generations with each doorway, of hearing ancestors grinding maize and polishing turquoise: that feeling of mystery and wonder that is Chaco. Observant viewers will recognize the same set of doorways from others in this series, shot from the opposite direction under different lighting conditions. All three images are journey metaphors, and complement each other as companions.
