In 1996, the writer Allan Douglass Coleman and the Finnish photographer Nina Sederholm began an extended stay in the American southwest. Each underwent the process of adaptation to a radically unfamiliar space, light, climate, and cultural mix.The resulting collaboration bears the title spine. By turns calm and ominous, joyous and melancholy, intimate and lonely, it constitutes a meditation on the survival of the human spirit in overwhelming solitude.
