Kraulis studies the remarkable diversity of the American deserts: the Sonoran, the Mojave, the Chihuahuan and the Great Basin deserts, including many national parks and monuments noted for their exceptional landscapes. His photographs celebrate at once the desert's purity of form and its bewildering richness of shapes and light and color. His focus ranges from the rim of the Grand Canyon or an aerial view of the monoliths at Monument Valley to details of exquisite murals etched by water into sandstone walls. He is fascinated too by the biology of the desert, especially by the exotic plants that flourish here, the stately cactuses of Arizona or the bristlecone pines of California and Nevada, the oldest living things on earth. This is an evocative portrait of the marvelous and secret places of the desert's unspoiled wilderness.
