Ed Freeman

Browsing through books at The Depot in Mill Valley I had to pick up and bring home a book with a series of photos by Ed Freeman called Desert Realty.
Some were shot on the edge of Death Valley and this Airstream is one of my favorites. Some days I want to cash in my chips, buy the DWR's model and head for the desert myself!
He takes the photos and then plays with them before arriving at the final "edited" image. Ed cites Bernd & Hilla Becker as his influences These also remind me of The Salton Sea documentary I saw not long ago - another one of those wonderful quirky places on the edge of the desert. Ed also is working on a book of surfer photos taken in Hawaii - stay tuned.
