[A]rid, Republican and known predominantly for its startling desert beauty and the Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona is one of America’s most beguiling states. Beneath its internationally recognised exterior, though, there exists daily life, which, over the course 20 years, has been captured by seminal documentary photographer David Hurn.
His new book, Arizona Trips, documents his visits to the state between 1979 and 2001 and records such remarkable practices as Dolly Parton lookalike contests, wild horse wrangling and overnight care for cacti. See a selection of images from the book below.
Arizona Trips is published by Reel Art Press. For more information click here.
