Four Corners

October 2021 • It's easy to drive away from here drunk on the cocktail of orange, brown, and green that infuses every monolith and expanse, but the signs of civilization lost are sobering—whether a cliff dwelling on tribal land controlled by the federal government or yet another U.S. flag flying upside down on MAGA private property. Four Corners may be ancient but it speaks eloquently to our current condition, and to the endless cycle of thievery (or accusations thereof) in this profoundly barren landscape.
