Daniel Skwarna’s most recent project, Empty City, was awarded a 2021 Applied Arts Award for Covid Response. In his award-winning images, he has photographed the different characters who make up the squatter community of Slab City, a group of people living off grid in the Sonoran Desert in the US. Braving the elements to reimagine existence outside the confines of mainstream society, these intimate portraits speak to the harsh realities of lives lived under the heat of the desert sun. Skwarna mostly uses medium and large format photography.
