The Last Mayors of The Salton Sea

Here is a new little documentary for Atlas Obscura. 

Many moons ago (wow) I had an internship at this very large really corporate music magazine and really hated it. For some reason I coped with this by watching Bombay Beach constantly. The film, and the Salton Sea itself, became this weird source of comfort/a mythical magical place to me, and I’m really glad we were able to shoot this before Coronavirus. I know there are bigger problems in the world (like people dying) but I find myself thinking alot about places like The Ski Inn…if they don’t survive this the world is going to be so boring.
