Antelope Canyon (Exhibition)
On Navajo land east of Page, Arizona, Antelope Canyon is actually two slot canyons primarily formed by flash flooding of the sandstone landscape during the monsoon season. With the twisted wavy canyon walls ranging from 1 - 3 m in width and up to 50 m deep they form an ethereal red cathedral of light and sculptured rock.
Shinning down from the world outside the sun rays enters the deeper canyon in a stream of brilliant white like a searchlight to the canyon floor. From the sandy bottom it reflects out, bouncing off the rock walls and lighting the space in a beautiful glow, the textured walls felt rough and dry under my fingers as I explored the twists and turns of the craggy tunnels. Guided by the light and shadows to photograph the mesmerizing qualities of this unique environment I was drawn to capturing the floating light beams and fluid details in the wave like sandstone walls.
