The Tumbleweed (Personal project)
Over nearly a decade I have photographed tumbleweeds in Colorado and across the American West. This project features pictures of tumbleweed storms (similar to snowstorms) and images of the unique culture that has sprung up around this iconic western plant. Photographed using Portra film and my beloved Mamiya 6 camera.
