A photographic study of my muse Natalia in the Grand Canyon
“Chasing the Light” February 2010 was quite possibly my 70th trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. It was also early in my 70th year.  I have been making photographs in the Grand Canyon since my first trip in 1973. I made photos on science and research trips, on commercial trips, on private trips, and on photography trips. Often on previous trips I would think to myself as I floated, “this would be a great place to photograph a model. I wish I had a model.” But I never did have a model.

My wishes came true on this trip. Margeaux, my great friend my creative muse, my colleague and gifted photographer was on the trip, her first through the canyon. She modeled for me one day when we had time enough, when it was warm enough and when we had chased the light all the way to the camp above Granite Rapid, mile 93.So we made these photos on the 12th day of the trip, on a warm, sunny Sunday,
February 14th, 2010.
