The Road Goes On Forever

Monument Valley, Utah, USA – 2022

 

Monument Valley is the very essence of the South West of America; a colossal
theatre of dreams and a canvas for movies without equal. It is the beating heart
of the Wild West, a landscape of such timeless grandeur that we are forced to
recognise that our time on this extraordinary planet is short and our footprint
minimal. Its scale provokes a sensory overload never diluted by familiarity.

John Ford and John Wayne went back time and time again because the
landscape does much of the storytelling work for a director. It serves to elevate
those who perform on the stage as the context is almost always one of heroic
isolation.
We got lucky with the light at the famous Forrest Gump Point that Monday
morning. There was a window of about five minutes and the girls were so
professional despite the chilling wind. Pictures like this make the job so
rewarding and always remind me what a team effort it is. In particular, a big
shout out to Nicole Allowitz; her styling is always so on point and was critical
for the intended vibe on one of the most famous stretches of road in the world.
The title of the image is a borrow from Robert Earl Keen – the genius singer
songwriter from Texas whom we sing along to whilst on the road in America.
The follow up of this photograph had to be called “And The Party Never Ends.”
