SAHARA Co-Editors Jacqueline Spafford and Mark Hinchman, and Associate Editor Jeannine Keefer | Nov 14, 2023
This month’s highlights focus on the many green spaces and landscapes captured in the SAHARA collection. Locations span the globe and serve as spaces for contemplation, commemoration, recreation, work, or simply as the landscape around a structure. The vibrancy of these greens can be affected by the time of day, the film or camera used, or your screen.
