This is a collection of photos taken in Sedona, Arizona between 2013 and 2020. I am drawn to the place because of its natural beauty, majestic red rock formations and community. The rich cultural history of its indigenous people is expressed through the art, food, hospitality, and mythology. In a place somewhat removed from the hustle of big city I find solace in the time I spend there. I consider Sedona an escape for my own wellbeing, a time of rejuvenation and healing. There is a spirit there, an energy that calls to my soul. It just happens to be one of the most photographed places on earth.
Wow, Even the rocks in Sedona meditate!

No photograph can do justice the majestic wonder which is Sedona. I highly encourage everyone to explore the sights, surroundings and rich cultural heritage. The collection here is a portion of the works I have produced. I will update this page as I ad these to the catalog.
“Why didn’t I know about Sedona before? Why did no one tell me? It’s breathtaking. It’s … indescribable. Well, all right, not literally indescribable. You can describe it. You can say, There are these huge red sandstone rocks everywhere, jutting up from the desert, making you feel all tiny and insignificant. You can say, There’s a kind of rawness to the landscape which gives you goosebumps. You can say, There’s a solitary bird of prey hanging above us, high in the sky, which seems to put all of humankind into perspective. You can say all that. But it’s not the same as being there.”
