The Grand Canyon, one of America’s oldest National Parks, is an awesome sight. I first encountered this unimaginable landscape 52 years ago; each subsequent visit to the park was met with suprise, something different at which to marvel. It is impossible to photograph the park as a whole, rather, one must look at each new revelation and photograph each new understanding as best as possible with limited tools and technique. This series reveals to a viewer ways in which I saw the park in April, 2017, a current visual understanding of this magnificent place.
The pinyon pine is an endemic species growing on the rim of the Grand Canyon. The pine nuts from the pinyon pine provided a staple in the diet of the aboriginal peoples for at least the past 10,000 years. This particular pinyon pine stands on the rim at Yaqui Point.
