In a recent article in online photography magazine feature shoot, seven of Yvonne Albinowski‘s (BFA 2004 Photography) photographs from her Slab City, California series are presented alongside a description of her work.
The series focuses on residents of an area at the foothills of the Chocolate Mountains in the Colorado desert. Albinowski explains that although it belongs to the state, the land has been somewhat abandoned by authorities; the people who live there now, and whom Albinowski has depicted, have settled there for free.
