The Travelers book was the result of a self-assigned project. My goal was to record the historical events as depicted by the Shamans (hundreds to thousands of years ago) during their vision quest to enter the spirit world.
I have photographed these images utilizing a number of techniques, and with the use of infrared technology latent images have become more visible. Most graffiti was removed electronically to restore the original images.
In accomplishing my goals of this project, I feel that the Shamans respect and harmony with the spirit world have in one small part been restored.
