My name is David Lorne Chandonet. I have been a Mohave County resident for 34 years and moved to Lake Havasu 2 years ago. The work I will be showing is the result of many excursions over a 4 year period in the desert Southwest and Great Basin regions of The United States. My mission is to bring the beauty and history of the region to you. The work is single image digital capture. I do not utilize multiple exposure, nor are any of the works composite. Post processing is kept to an absolute minimum to bring out the nuances of the metallic media which I have chosen to showcase my work.
I am drawn to stark landscapes with an otherworldly or surrealistic feel. When composing an image, my first thought is always of the light. I also use shadow to boil down the composition and to impart a dramatic effect.
There is a “suchness” to this region that is impossible to describe.The absolute silence of The Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The vermillion cliffs and slick rock plateaus of Utah. The harsh and arid desert of Arizona. All beautiful in their own way, yet completely different. I have tried to combine my love of photography and the open road with the natural beauty and history of the region to present to you, the viewer, my personal vision. If you enjoy my work then I have succeeded. So…climb aboard the Objeto Volante (Flying Object) , buckle up and join me in an adventure!
