Nevada Rock Art contains rarely seen images that are themselves artifacts of fieldwork conducted throughout the back roads, valleys, summits, drainages, and mountain ridges of Nevada. From the northernmost wildlife refuge to the sun-blasted southern tip of creosote-bush country, the process of photographing is itself a testimonial to better than two decades of exploring and experiencing Nevada’s beguilingly diverse landscapes.
Nevada Rock Art centers on the scholarly nature of artistry, celebrating the human spirit of people past. Naturally, rock carvings exist in situ, sentinel silent artifacts of eras long ago. Let the story begin; remember to look closely, with respect and reverence, for the marks reveal themselves to those pure of hearth and intent.
