Higley
by Tamarra Kaida
Publisher's Description
Higley, Arizona is disappearing. Week by week, a township, once at the center of a farming expanse, is steadily loosing ground to the exploding metropolis known as the ┬╗greater Phoenix area┬ź. Two-lane, dirt-shouldered, rough paved roads are being widened and annexed by entrance drives to bedroom communities with promising names like Heritage Springs or Sunset Haven. Feed lots and grain silos have been replaced by strip malls and fast-food chains. Forced to sell out due to inflated property taxes and the urban encroachment, these vast lots of land, along with their history are loosing the battle against a homogenous America. These photographs of Higley are an in-depth documentation of this micro-cosmos of globalization.
