Marfa Stories for Apiece Apart

Marfa — Michael A Muller-28

No, I’d never been to this country 
before.
No, I didn’t know where the roads would lead me.
No, I didn’t intend to turn back.
 — Mary Oliver 

For the on-going Apiece Apart Woman series, I traveled to West Texas recently to shoot three women that are integral in that vast and quiet landscape.

Music for Year’s End 2015

YE15-COVER
In closing 2015, I coupled the fall and winter seasons into a single, hour-long, year-end playlist. Culled from my favorite releases from this past year, it’s intentionally devoid of vocals and lyrics to allow room for true listening, introspection, remembrance and dreaming. I trust that this finds you thankful and hopeful for your life and those lives around you. Happy holidays. I love you.

One of the gnarliest slams I’ve ever taken on a skateboard was my first trip to the coastal Oregon concrete mecca of Lincoln City. I revisited the heralded spot a couple months later to capture the immense slopes.
