The series "Mojave" by Markus Altmann is subtitled "High Desert Crossings". It is the result of various journeys through the Mojave desert that streches from Los Angels to Las Vegas (its southwestern part is often referred to by locals as the "High Desert"). Despite his documentary approach, Altmanns large format colour prints often resemble staged installations. The Mojave desert is marked by mining, mitlitary sites and aircraft industry, elements of which appear and re-appear in the photographs. Markus Altmanns High Desert crossings are a journey along the traces of the American dream and what's left of it.
