Big Throat




Confronted with the prospect of being a father to a daughter in America, Nat Ward traveled to Northern New Mexico to see his own shadows and secrets with clarity. Big Throat is a product of what he discovered about the landscape, about America, and about himself as he crossed the Rio Grande Gorge bridge and photographed deep into the canyon.

The high desert has a way of raising the stakes. It’s a place where one cannot escape the palpable proximity of mortality. With a disorienting photographic perspective of the American landscape, both physical and psychological, Big Throat is resonant for anyone who feels lost in the place they call home and profoundly moving for those who know that their secrets make them whole. Big Throat is the story of a man changed by the humbling scale of darkness the desert. It is a deadpan account of the things men can’t say and a ledger of the very things they should.
