Origin (Arizona Impact 5), 2007, photographed by Stan Gaz from his Impact Series.
During his youth, photographer Stan Gaz was facinated by the notion of meteorites. Thus, he recently began to photograph meteorite impact structures and their surrounding landscapes. Many of these locations are sacred to various tribal communities and have a variety of stories and beliefs attributed to them. Although many versions exist, most relate to the notion of the craters possessing secrets of mankind’s origin.
