After  living  in  a  motorhome  in  the  Salton  Sea,  Nicholas  Albrecht  questions  the  notion  of  being  an insider through this intimate journey of discovery. Deserts are strange spaces in Western culture; we don’t  really  know  how  to  be  in  them.  There  was  the  biblical  version  of  the  desert,  the  desert  as  a metaphor for isolation, asceticism, temptation, and death. In an attempt to document the experience of living in the Salton Sea, Albrecht breaks down these conventions to narrate his story. The photographs become symbolic representations of the people and the place. The truth is both vague and concrete as thoughts transform into reality. Similarly to how dreams are constructed, One, No One and One Hundred Thousand is a chaotic representation of life, identifying with one and its opposite.
