The Desert Of Souls

I am currently working on a photo project titled THE DESERT OF SOULS, which is my vision of the deserts in the American Southwest. I embarked on this journey several years ago, and to date, I’ve spent 6 cumulative months shooting in these deserts.

My goal for this Fotofund campaign is to return to the American Southwest so I can complete THE DESERT OF SOULS body of work by December 2014. This project is the longest running and most important in my career as photographer. It will culminate in an exhibition, a book published by a professional publishing company, and a digital time-lapse video of all the places visited in the Southwest.

For now, I still need to do more shooting to complete the project, and I’m looking to raise $7,500 USD to fund the completion.

The funding period is 40 days, and the funds will be used towards travel expenses, lodging,  photo equipment and printing.


About THE DESERT OF SOULS

“…To discover the soul of a landscape one must go a step beyond the threshold of ‘The Beautiful Landscape’ which is merely something pleasant to the eye, instead an inward journey must be embarked to find a spiritual connection to the creator, a state of mind where a true connection to the self and the surroundings is strongly present. Here the viewer will find themselves observing artworks that transcends from the surface layer of the print to a journey inside the soul of the landscape, felt by the creator, the photographer and the observer.
This is what Patricia Dinu has succeeded in creating and now sharing her rewards with the viewer.”
