One of BEST border towns in #FarWestTexas – El Paso, Texas! The historic downtown is one of the best, photogenically, in the #AmericanSouthwest, to document with a good camera. I go here on occasion to escape the familiar.
People have been leaving me quotes and references to the Coen Brother’s Film; “Raising Arizona” and I have to give credit to the #CoenBrothers (Filmmakers) for inspiring me and having a pretty deep influence on my photography. Films like #RaisingArizona and #NoCountryForOldMen weren’t simply about the amazing photography but more along the lines of the artistry, the collaborations, and the story behind each of the wonderful films and movies collectively accomplished by the direction and leadership of these brothers. So my “last name” is a tribute to the legacy of Joel and Ethan Coen and all the photographers, film scouts, actors, creatives and collaborators that have made their collective efforts a reality over and over again. So this year, I dedicate my B-Day to them! 🙂 Or my name ain’t Nathan Arizona! #arizona #filmappreciation #history #americansouthwest #birthday #introspection #truth #tbirdnation #utah #grandstaircase ~ via Instagram: ift.tt/2cX0R09
