What may look like a clever trick repeated here in this series of photos is actually anything but. Hold your preconceptions for one second while we inform you that Daniel Kukla, the photographer, spent a solid month in a tiny cabin in the notoriously lonely Joshua Tree desert in America in order to get this project just right.
His method of placing a mirror on an easel before photographing the landscape is his way of representing the two deserts conjoining and becoming one — a pleasing and simple result for something that could have potentially been a lot more complicated, perhaps involving more spreadsheets or some dodgy double exposure. But no, in this beautiful, almost scientific representation of a pure feeling of affiliation with a piece of land, Daniel has given us something truly extraordinary to witness, and for that we’re very grateful!
