The Desert Mocks Prada

Fig. 1. Burk Uzzle - Desert Prada, Texas, 2006.

'In most of these pictures I am exulting in America’s personality out on a limb with itself. It’s as if America and I try so hard to get everything right, but in spite of ourselves we invariably end up out on that limb, finding that often the only real salvation comes with a gentle chuckle and a sly, knowing smile. All of my pictures seem to conclude that logic, while useful to a point, is by itself a bore. So we might as well have a little fun, even if it’s in between some tears.'
