A Place Called Marfa

Cindy Sasha has accumulated a collection of images on Marfa, Texas on 35mm and digital, here is a glimpse into the awoken ghost town 

“In March 2019, I decided to pack my bag and head off on a two month road trip through South West America starting from Los Angeles, California and heading to Marfa, Texas. Marfa is a small ex military town, just near the border of Mexico and once the location for the film Giant. The town was re-founded, revived and is now famed by the artist Donald Judd, whose installations are carefully positioned and placed around Marfa. It has now become a haven for artists and hipster businesses bringing in a boom of tourists. I spent a few days in the community of Marfa, photographing and wandering around under the hot Texan sky”.
