Photo Gallery: A Few of Amy's Best Shots

Arizona native Amy Martin has been shooting her beloved home state and Grand Canyon for nearly two decades. Here are a few of her favorite shots.


As an Arizona native, I have lived with the paradox of water and desert for as long as I can remember—and it has formed the course of my life. I have worked off and on for the past ten years in different capacities on and along the Colorado River and it is a life that I dream about when I am away. My images in this gallery celebrate the lives and landscapes formed by the Colorado River through Grand Canyon.
