Hasselblad 903 SWC – Dune Photographs

This quartet of seemingly related pictures was actually culled from four separate trips to dune fields of the western United States. The images were shot with 120 negatives (or transparencies) and the camera used in each instance was the Hasselblad 903 SWC (Superwide) with its fixed 38mm Biogon Zeiss lens.

From top to bottom:

Antiphony (Little Sahara Recreation Area, Utah)
Counterpoint (Death Valley National Park, California)
Capriccio (Death Valley National Park, California)
Roundelay (Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, Oregon)

  1. Stupendous stuff. Great to see the dunes and dream of warm weather after this ridiculous winter. 🙂
