Mujer Ángel, Desierto de Sonora (Angel Woman, Sonoran Desert)

Close up of Mujer Ángel, Desierto de Sonora (Angel Woman, Sonoran Desert)

A black-and-white photograph shows the back of a woman as she crests a rocky path above a vast desert landscape beneath an expansive sky. Her traditional, ethnic full skirt, long-sleeved blouse, and long, straight, dark hair contrasts with the modern portable stereo she carries.
