Hi Joseph,I personally do not move or remove any object from within a cabin I photograph including ones that are completely derelict and obviously abandoned. The objects I have photographed in my book are ones collected in the open desert—they are essentially trash. A few of the objects—rusted metal pieces of no real value such as a shot out paint can have been added to my rock garden in Joshua Tree where I currently live.
Many local artists in the High Desert collect this 'trash' and give it new life in recycled sculptural art pieces, tile works, and jewelry. Collection of this detritus helps to return the desert back to its natural state.
