Description Oregon's Outback, or high desert, is a vast expanse of land in southeast Oregon state near the Nevada border that sits at an average of 6000 feet above sea level with mesas climbing several thousand feet about that, stretching as far as the eye can see. This is about fifty miles north of Plush, Oregon in a gemstone mining area.
Joshua Cramer, Olympia, WA Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement Joshua is a Northwest native, born and raised and his goal as an artist is to share his reverence and passion for the wild places in this unique region of the world. As he travels beyond the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, he strives to capture the distinct colors and shapes of new places in his own unique perception of their beauty. Joshua shoots with a Nikon camera and has been taking photos since 2004. He continue to develop his skills by exploring his understanding of humanity’s place within and without nature, and how these untouched places stir feelings deep within our souls. Conveying these intense feelings through photography is his passion that never fails to disappoint.
