Transience

The photographic portraits in this series are placed in juxtaposition to images of the landscape they occupy. There are both affluent “snowbirds” and those of very limited means – including methamphetamine addicts, ex-convicts, and others choosing to live off the grid – in the Southwest desert.  Former professor of Photography and Digital Media at Central Washington University, Chalmers is currently Professor of Photography at Youngstown State University in Ohio.
