Christopher Langley, a life-long educator, has lived in and studied the Mojave Desert for more than forty years. Working as a film historian, a founder of the Lone Pine Film History Museum and Inyo County Film Commissioner, he focuses on the desert’s complex relationship with cinema and how land plays an essential role in the story of our lives. He collaborates with photographer Osceola Refetoff in an on-going project called “High & Dry: dispatches from the land of little rain.” Their work appears regularly here. Co-founder of the Alabama Hills Stewardship Group, Langley’s environmental activism has won several commendations including a National Conservation Cooperation Award.
