About Heike Bohnstengel

The cinematic quality and extreme weather of the Mojave, Sonoran and Chihuahuan desert have inspired the collection Desert Diary. It often feels familiar, like a place you know, but have only seen in a movie. I have travelled these deserts for many years, and no road trip or landscape ever feel the same because of the constantly changing light and shapes of the desert. Driving towards the Mexican border the landscape becomes very sparse, minimalist, the weather and changing clouds transforming the views every minute. It has almost a meditative quality.
