Lower Antelope Corkscrew Slot Canyon #9

I made this shot two months before the big flood at Antelope Canyon which claimed 11 lives. I shot it on film, had it drum scanned and then eventually years later took it into Photoshop and created a digital negative. It’s one of the most beautiful yet unusual places I’ve ever been. Worth a visit if you find yourself near Page, AZ – the upper canyon is MUCH safer and easier to photograph than the lower where I made this shot – and where the tourists died during the flood.

  1. We were there last summer and learned about that flood. Incredible (and deadly) phenomenon. The tour guides were quite nervous about thunderstorms in the forecast. Great shot.

  2. Mr Bourne,
    I once conducted an interview with you for my College newspaper, The Challenger [Tacoma Community College; 1999] and after viewing your work at a downtown gallery, bought one of your photos of the Antelope Canyon series.
    You are an incredible and gifted artist and my favorite.
    Although the print that I bought was stolen, I plan to purchase another and hope to hear that you have a showing in the Jefferson City, Missouri area soon.
    Respectfully, D. Valentin
