After a long flight from London and a brief detour through Denver where I was presenting at Imersa, I have finally arrived to Santa Fe. I hope that after a couple of days preparing the logistics of the trip I will have time to post more often. I just collected the RV that I will be using to travel across the Southwest. I will name it Orwell, because he first hit the road in 1984! Although he is not perfectly in shape I have no doubt he is going to be a great colleague in this adventure.
I will be following the route discovered by Antonio Armijo and I intend to travel for approximately 5 weeks between Santa Fe and Los Angeles, meeting Spanish descendants to see how their traditions have been kept alive across these vast landscapes. I will be accompanied on my journey by fellow photographer Matt Wright who will be documenting the process as well as responding to the environments we encounter.
