Artist Statement: These three photos were taken on a road trip prior to the pandemic at the ghost town of Rhyolite, NV. Each of these human made artifacts tells its own story about the life the residents of this town lived and the fact they have survived over 100 years in the harsh desert climate says something about their manufacture.
