Mark Klett 『Saguaro, DC 06』
Medium gelatin silver print
Size 20 x 16 inch
The saguaro is one of over 200 cactus "portraits" I've made over the last 20 years.
The initial series was called "Desert Citizens" in reference to Native American beliefs
that saguaros are the souls of lost ancestors. The work was published in 2007
in my new book called (simply) Saguaros, Radius Press.
