2020 - 15th B&W SPider Awards - Nominee in Fine Art
I was fascinated by the strangely sculptural but definitely incongruous water towers dotted across the New Mexico landscape. Literally in the middle of nowhere with hundreds of acres of nothingness around, these structures stick up out of the flat plains.
This one, just off the historic Route 66 really caught my eye, so we detoured to get to it, finding ourselves at the gates of the Albuquerque Detention Centre! As numerous B&W Sheriff cars drove past I was super anxious about being detained myself, for taking pictures there, but I genuinely was just interested in the water tower. They must have thought I was more weird than dangerous, so left me to it :-)
