The Cowlishaw Brothers from Cedar City, Utah, have launched their most ambitious Kickstarter yet to send Nathan Cowlishaw, a professional landscape photographer, on a 6090 day adventure from the seat of a compact 4×4 to photograph the most rural Americana that can be found in the Desert Southwest. This is happening in conjunction with a later event; the first annual Utah UFO Festival, being planned by Joseph and Nathan Cowlishaw for August 1922, 2015 in Cedar City, Utah. As part of the Kickstarter project, Nate Cowlishaw will be following a route that will traverse along 1,600 miles of the USMexican border and the journey will cover about 9,500 miles of open dirt roads, 4×4 trails, and paved highways. They need the public’s support in order to raise funds for the project.
Nathan Cowlishaw will be leaving midMarch after the Kickstarter campaign is able to reach its funding goal of $15,000 dollars to cover trip expenses and all of the rewards that are being offered to Kickstarter backers who financially support the project from a portfolio of professional images that will be captured from the trip. They will be apart of a special collection selected by Nate, who is also known as ’Talking Tree.’
Nate has been doing photography for over 15 years and was recently published in Southern Utah’s local Elan Magazine in the Spring 2014 edition. Many people from various communities around the desert Southwest follow his updates under the Instagram username; @Talking_Tree.
