The beautiful West
In New Mexico, at sixteen miles south-west of Alamogordo, in the mountain basin of Tularosa, this immense field of white sand dunes made of gypsum crystals stretches for 275 square miles. It is the largest area of gypsum dunes in the world. Madeleine Gehrig has caught its rare beauty; “paintings” rather than photos, in which the magic of these snow-white sands is highlighted July 2016
A new photographic report by Madeleine Gehrig of the Petrified Forest National Park, in the area known as Blue Mesa due to the grayish-blue color of the clay holding the logs.
Along the road leading into the heart of the Park, one is totally immersed in a wild lunar landscape: the fragile soil makes paths impossible May 2016
Thirty-one splendid photos by Madeleine Gehrig dedicated to the arid and fascinating landscapes in the Arizona Petrified Forest National Park, about 25 miles east of Holbrook, county seat of Navajo County.
The incredible sight of the trees that, buried under volcanic eruptions, waterways, ashes and sediment, have become petrified over millions of years January 2016
In Madeleine Gehrig’s extraordinary photographic feature all the fascination of the Bisti Wilderness Area, known also as the “Bisti Badlands”. 4000 acres of wild, incredibly beautiful but little known territory.
It’s in the desert of San Juan Basin, in the North West of New Mexico December 2015
by Paolo Mele The Lands ends of the world, finibus terrae for the Ancients, are lands of unknown horizons, extreme places. One of the most famous and fascinating, the start and finish of the American continent, is San Francisco October 2015
In Madeleine Gehrig’s magnificent photo report the pictures of the Abiquiu desert (New Mexico) alternate with those of the Roman Catholic Benedictine monastery of “Christ in the Desert”, perfectly integrated in the surrounding landscape.
The desert itself, arid but fascinating, and the building, austere but welcoming, bid us to meditate and pray May 2015
Every year at Albuquerque, in New Mexico, they hold the world’s biggest hot-air balloon meeting: the “Balloon Fiesta”.
The artist Madeleine Gehrig has taken these extraordinary photos from one of the balloons for Bridge Puglia USA.
The festival, which lasts several days, began in 1972 as the main event in the fiftieth birthday celebrations for 770 Kob Radio. Up to 600 balloons can take part and each day there are over 100,000 spectators at the launch sites, not counting the people gathered at the landing zones and all over Albuquerque January 2015
Asphalt, desert, old cars, a dog resting in a rusty truck and the ever-changing, always immense skies of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and California.
No American dream and glossy images but a highly evocative, solitary, wild and luminous America in the photo reportage by Lauren Berley June 2012
