"The central axis of Star Axis, Charles Ross's naked eye observatory to observe the stars, is precisely aligned to Polaris. For many of the nearly 35 years I have been photographing the site's growth, it has seemed to be growing out of its own ruin. As the earth sculpture nears completion, it becomes a monument scaled to allow us to feel how the human form relates to cosmic space."—Edward Ranney

When I finally arrived at Shiprock that morning it was approx 5:45 a.m. The sun was just coming up and the Shiprock was behind a wall of clouds. When I finally stopped and stepped out with my camera and tripod, I sank ankle deep into cold mud. But when I looked up I knew that what was about to happen in front of me was the thing I had come all this way for.
For the next three hours I sat in front of Shiprock... not a soul around, and I felt like we had a conversation. There are the times when it's almost like Mother Nature is says, ‘Oh yeah, you’re out here for a snapshot? Prove to me that you’re for real.’ And eventually if you’re there, when you really tune it in... that’s what happened with Shiprock." —Mitch Dobrowner
