The idea of where I want to travel generally starts by taking note of places that keep popping up and make their way into my subconscious. I kept seeing images of soaring red sand dunes and stick trees — researched where it was and booked a trip in 2008. With two close friends along, I rented a four wheel drive pickup with a tenting platform and we drove the country. Sadly, most of the images I made were lost when the truck was broken into. I’m planning another visit to Africa in the near future to hopefully recapture some of those wildlife images.
