Why We Care

  • This is a fragile place, and a place where naked forms themselves give shape to our own often shapeless spiritual longings. We often wish to experience the non-city and the non-developed, to come close to a place where familiar things are not.

    Will South, Images of Great Salt Lake, 1996
