You're invited to my solo B/W show coming up...
The “Salton Sea” was created between 1915-17 when the Coronado River broke through farmer’s dykes flowing into the Imperial Valley forming California’s largest lake. Over the years it has had its ups and down. Its heyday was in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. During that period hotels, yacht clubs, trailer parks, even planned housing was built. On any given day, sailing, sport fishing, swimming, and power boat racing could be seen. It was truly a playground with people coming from all over to the “Riviera of the West.” However today as the lake shrinks due to SoCal’s coastal cities becoming larger and not allowing Colorado water to replenish the lake, the communities around the sea are dying a slow death. These images are from my series named, “Decaying Dreams.”
