Photographer Serge escaped from New York City and arrived in Tucson, Arizona. Over the past eight years of living in the desert, he has adapted his signature street photography style that he cultivated in NYC into a new way of working in the landscape. In his upcoming talk, he will share photographs from his early career along with images made while hiking through 5000+ miles of Arizona wilderness.
