    About The Work

    Mark Klett smartly composed this photograph while hiking at dawn in Mexico’s El Pinacate natural reserve. Upon summiting a cinder cone, the artist noticed his shadow stretching out upon the land before him, so he positioned his body in alignment with the saguaro cactus at the center of this composition. Klett explains, “Saguaros are the symbol of the Sonoran Desert in this part of Mexico and my home state of Arizona just a few dozen miles to the north. Saguaros may grow to be 30 or 40 feet tall and live over two hundred years. This cactus was relatively young, about my same age, though much younger in saguaro years than I was in human years. It was a reflection of differing perceptions of time, of life and the land.”
