About the Work

On arrival in Phoenix, I was surprised to discover, in my rental car's courtesy city-map, a sizeable area of the city entitled the ' Salt River Indian Reservation'. There had been no reference to this in the guidebooks I had been reading on the airplane. So I set off down Indian School Road which, arrow straight, transverses the centre of the city and this reservation. I selected two cross roads and took a photograph at each.
