The Joshua Tree Project | From Summer to Fall
PHOTOGRAPHER AND TMDE FOUNDER PAUL MARTINEZ SHARES the continuation of HIS ONGOING SERIES “THE JOSHUA TREE PROJECT.”
As the season changed from Summer to Fall, and with days feeling shorter due to the change in time; it presented a challenge. It forced me to shoot in light that I typically wouldn’t have shot in, which resulted in me capturing scenes that I would’ve never thought about capturing.
Since moving to the high desert, I’ve really become connected with not only my surroundings; but also the small intricacies of daily living – like the variety of phases the moon goes through. It’s something that I have never previously paid attention too. Living in a big city like Los Angeles, often resulted in living life at a faster pace and seemingly oblivious to many curiosities.
As I’m writing this, some of the biggest fires in California history are ravaging entire towns. Leaving one to wonder… “How much time is left to enjoy our sacred spaces?”
