Beginning Saturday, March 12 the High & Dry project will be returning to explore the mining town of Trona for further dispatches and a book of prose and photographs in the future. The visit will be a more extended one thanks to donations made by Best Western Frontier Motel in Lone Pine and Kerry Powell.
Many dispatches have already been written and now KCET Artbound will be syndicating a series of four “portraits” of people who make their homes there.
Osceola Refetoff and I will be staying at the motel in town and exploring aspects of the mining industry, the plants and what life is like for people in Trona. Be sure to check in here and on our website desertdispatches.com for more details about our discoveries in the months ahead.
