Every weekend for two years, recent MFA grad Jennifer Spitzer traveled to the "Desert Oasis" known as the Salton Sea, a rift lake in Southern California.
Explains Spitzer, "The Sea, now surrounded by muck, salt and debris, has been reclaimed many times by nature, and today is often regarded as a vision of a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The communities surrounding the Sea mostly lie abandoned, waiting for their patrons to return. Here, I find unique beauty and a relationship between nature and man that is ubiquitous to the landscape surrounding the Salton Sea."
