This spectacular selection of work includes truly iconic imagery ranging from the “State Capitol” from 1912 or the “Concorde, Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix” showing the plane on the airport tarmac from 1986 with Camelback Mountain in the distance.

Plus powerful images of the “Roden Crater, Flagstaff,” large-scale earthworks project in Flagstaff by world famous artist James Turrell, as well as candid images such as “Joe Davis, Mesa Barber” depicting the 90 year old barber cutting hair at Mesa shop for over 60 years.
