Anita Pinedo Touchet, was born and grew up in Southwestern Venezuela, near the dunes of Coro. She's told me stories of tourists riding camels in the sand dunes, and how she played there as a child. In 1993 while on an assignment in Venezuela, Anita asked me to take a few photographs of the sand dunes to show her friends. Late one afternoon on my way back to Caracas, I saw the sand dunes and remembered her request. Although tired from being on the road for a couple of weeks, and not that excited about hiking through piles of sand, I stopped. While walking up into the sand dunes to get to a higher level, the shapes and shadows formed by the low setting sun started changing with every step. I started photographing, and didn't stop until my last roll of film was exposed. It was one of the most exciting experiences in my life. I've photographed sand dunes in a number of places now, and my favorite sand dunes (so far) are the Mesquite Flats sand dunes in Death Valley.
