Stephen E. Strom

His work has been exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and is held in several permanent collections, including the Center for Creative Photography and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. His photography complements poems and essays in four books published by the University of Arizona Press--Secrets from the Center of the World, Sonoita Plain, Tseyi / Deep in the Rock, Earth and Mars, A Reflection, and his most recent book, Voices from Bears Ears: Seeking Common Ground on Sacred Land. He is also the author of Otero Mesa, Death Valley: Painted Light and Tidal Rhythms, and Bears Ears: Views from a Sacred Land,This Desert Hides Nothing, and Earth Forms.
