The Crossing – A Photo Essay by Andrew Pielage

Crossing the Sonoran Desert, within a mile of the United States/Mexico border, my thoughts drifted back and forth between the stark, lonesome beauty this desert is known for and the realization that humans, for thousands of years, have been crossing its almost completely barren and waterless landscape in search of a better life. — Andrew Pielage

Andrew Pielage’s two part series, The Crossing, about his three day journey across the Sonoran Desert is a must read. Through Andrew’s lens and words you will get to experience the barren starkness of the Sonoran Desert while simultaneously taking in its vast beauty. Andrew narrates a story that not only provides the reader with a sense of being there but accompanies those words with photos that put the reader on location. Taking into account the inherent risks associated with traveling the most dangerous portions of the Sonoran Desert, Andrew’s photo essay is a stellar example of story telling. Go. Read it. Now.
