In Berlin, at the Kehrer Gallery, American photographers Nancy Baron and Pamela Littky are showing works from their respective series of photographs documenting the physical and social terrain of the American Desert. Baron’s work studies the midcentury modern environment and lifestyle of Palm Springs, while Littky’s work examines the harsh desert life in two Mojave Desert towns claiming to be The Gateway to Death Valley. A close look at these seemingly disparate, tight-knit communities of Death Valley and Palm Springs shows surprising similarities in their paths to The American Dream, rising from the desert sands.
