“Begin anywhere.” (John Cage)
In early 2018, photographer and writer Alan Huck spent two months living in the largest city in New Mexico where, each day, he walked back and forth across the landscape until the daylight disappeared. The resulting book, I walk toward the sun which is always going down, charts the meandering course of this daily ritual, the disparate observations, chance encounters, and thought processes that constituted his time spent wandering hundreds of miles within the city limits. Combining photographs from the urban-desert margins with fragmentary prose, the work moves through a range of personal reflections, cultural references, and literary excerpts, merging the visual world and the conscious mind into one variegated territory.
I walk toward the sun which is always going down was published by MACK in September 2019 and shortlisted for the 2020 Rencontres d'Arles Photo-Text Book Award.
