Nevada Rock Art contains rarely seen images that are themselves artifacts of fieldwork conducted throughout the back roads, valleys, summits, drainages, and mountain ridges of Nevada. From the northernmost wildlife refuge to the sun-blasted southern tip of creosote-bush country, the process of photographing is itself a testimonial to better than two decades of exploring and experiencing Nevada’s beguilingly diverse landscapes.

The Black Rock is a desert realm the size of Delaware about one hundred miles north of Reno, Nevada.
Shaped by water, wind, geothermal activity, and human interaction since ancient times, the desolate, haunting landscape nonetheless teems with life in forms that have endured for millennia.
In a brilliant duet, a photographer and a geographer explore this eloquent, enigmatic landscape that has been the focus of study and contemplation by scientists, explorers, naturalists, overland sojourners, and artists.
