About High & Dry

High & Dry is writer/historian Christopher Langley and photographer Osceola Refetoff's long-term collaboration exploring the deserts of the American West and the people who live there. The myth of West is charged with hope and ambition, yet the current reality reflects a patchwork of struggling communities, dreamers, dropouts, and military-industrial compounds. Balancing images and words with the personal and historical, High & Dry focuses on the remnants and the future of human activity across these vast open spaces -- territory that is becoming increasingly dominated my immense wind and solar arrays, and the controversial dynamics of critical resource allocation.
