The Tumbleweed
Over nearly a decade I have photographed tumbleweeds in Colorado and across the American West. Pictures of tumbleweed storms - kind of like snowstorms - but also of the unique culture that has sprung up around this iconic western plant. Photographed using Portra film and my beloved Mamiya 6 camera.
