This is a compelling collection of the inhabitants who encircle the Salton Sea and what they have to say should be heard. It is their words that tell us about the glory days of the Sea’s past and a longing for a more promising future.
Although much has been written about the Salton Sea, this is the first book to capture the intimacy of those who live with the Sea. The Salton Sea is not just the environmental disaster we read about occasionally in the paper or catch a whiff of on a hot and humid day. This is a community to families, elderly, singles, couples, businesses and 400,000 migratory birds. For more information please visit www.portraitsandvoices.com
You will find more information on the book, as well as excerpts, and more about the author and how it came to be that a photographer from London via Germany and Washington DC ended up living at the Salton Sea.You can order this book via Paypal or cheque or from my Etsy shop.
