Tobias was many things

Tobias – hijo, hermano, tio, y artista – must be missed by many people.

Another roadside tragedy

A young man – a cowboy, if the lariat looped on the bottom of this cross is a clue – died along the highway, just south of town, where the road crests a slight rise and then curves to the left.

From the back, it looks like someone left a heart on the cross, but from the front, you can tell it’s a pair of angel wings. I liked that ambiguity.

Cross (with hat and mask)

This is the same location I’d photographed in 2015, but nothing looked the same. I think this indicates even more fatalities at this particular intersection, but it might also mean that grieving families are still visiting and adding to their loved one’s memorial.

Hope, lost

I always think I’m through photographing these roadside memorials. But then I see one like this and I know I’m not really done.

Sinuous and Tragic

It makes me sad to think that someone’s life ended here, under the vast and beautiful New Mexican sky and along the gently curving highway.

I always think I am through photographing these roadside memorials, but I never really am.
