Living Room Lecture: Ancient Geoglyphs
Geoglyphs of the Desert Southwest, published by Sunbelt Publications, is the first book dedicated to the earthen art of the southwest deserts of the United States.
The deserts of the Southwest contain one of the largest concentrations of geoglyphs outside of Peru’s Nazca Lines. These ancient Native American works of earthen art can be up to hundreds of feet long, and yet are often invisible until viewed from above. Before drones, GPS, or Google Maps, photographer Harry Casey spent thirty-five years documenting the region’s geoglyphs before natural erosion and human intervention could destroy these fragile sites. He was armed with nothing more than topographic maps, 35mm film cameras, and his beloved Piper J3 Cub aircraft. A newly published book collects Casey’s photographs into the first visual record of these features.
