About the Book
Heather Quinn is a photographer and nonfiction writer living in San Diego. Focusing on documentary photography, her work deals primarily with responses to the natural and urban landscape of the Southwest, tensions between the fragile ecology of the desert and humanity's struggle to dominate the land, and the intersections of cultures on both sides of the border with Mexico. Heather shoots in both analog and digital formats, but prefers the meditative, hands-on experience of black and white photography. Heather holds bachelor of arts degrees in English and political science, and is working towards an associate of arts in photography.
