Isolated Houses

These are photographs of isolated structures in the high desert of Southern California. All of the images are made in the east end of the Morongo Valley Basin, Wonder Valley, and the area surrounding the town of Twenty-Nine Palms. From the oceans edge in L.A., to the area that I am photographing, the landscape is continuously occupied. This area is the final edge of a vast urban expanse. For social, financial, or personal reasons individuals are pushed, or pulled, or simply seek this literal cultural edge. Beyond this point is unoccupied desert. On the simplest level I am drawn to the vernacular character of the architecture (painted with a Home Depot palette) as well as the amazing visual character of these structures on this vast desert plain lit by an extraordinary light. However, at base, my primary interest is to create images which are iconographic of a desire. A desire to be "beyond," a desire to be alone, a sign of man on the landscape”. - John Divola
