Highway 89

Story of the ImageThis image was taken on Highway 89 between Kanab, Utah, and Alstrom Point at Lake Powell on the Arizona border. I call this surreal treatment “photo magical realism.” The artwork began as a literal photograph; through the use of digital tools I transformed it into an invitation to explore a magical world, one that might exist in a Tolkien story filled with wonder and enchantment.

The “view portal” that frames the image is a photograph of an industrial window in a renovated factory in the Chelsea area of NYC. The window provides a gateway into fanciful realms where you can explore worlds familiar and unknown, the world as is and the world reimagined.
