Sprawling and vast, the American southwest is a thing of dreams. Extending across parched salt deserts, molten lava-formed hills, and fiery hoodoos, its varied terrain evokes awe and wonder at every turn.
While the natural beauty of this monumental region is overwhelming, the possibility of loss is never far. Natural parks are shrinking as their land is put up for oil-drilling, and fragile landscapes are threatened everywhere by changing climates.
Siblings Redd and Roxanna Walitzki set out across wilderness and wasteland, creating an artistic editorial series that captures the beauty of America’s expansive western territory. Their collaborative fashion-photos highlight the barren beauty of the desert regions, and feature sustainable high-fashion garments constructed from recycled materials. Passionate about inspiring positive changes in how we treat our fragile home planet, their work aims to remind us of what is so invaluable about the earth’s remaining wilderness.
