Moon Hill, 2002. 10 x 14. Digital print on archival paper.
With temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius, the 300-meter climb up Moon Hill proved to be a challenge. Not so for the local villagers, though. During our hike to the top, with shirts off and water bottles in each hand, a number of local touts, bundled in sports blazers and long pants, were able to keep pace and offer countless unsolicited comments on how little water we had and how wonderful it would be if we joined them for dinner at their home. That is, if we didnt perish on our way to the summit.
