Slot CanyonPhotos

These are a few of the dozens of shots I took last year in Antelope Canyon, a famous—and famously photographed—slot canyon on Navajo land near Page, Arizona.

It's formed over millions of years by water—flash floods—rushing through the sandstone, cutting and widening a narrow slit and shaping it into wave-like forms. As you walk through, it seems that every quarter-inch offers a different view, different relationships of shapes and light from the slit above.

I love the ambiguity of these photos, some looking like events in outer space. Actually, they're on their side; I forgot to turn them to the vertical—but I kind of like them this way.
