Finding Echo was pure luck. I decided I wanted to shoot somewhere I’ve never been before so I tried googling best places to photograph in Utah. After that failed attempt I got on google maps, zoomed into Utah, and started looking for towns with interesting names. I scrolled past Echo and thought that could work.
On a quiet Sunday afternoon, a few days later, a good friend and I set off on a photo adventure. Echo was eerily quiet. I would classify it as a semi ghost town. The only human interaction I had was when big pickup trucks full of questionable looking men would slowly drive by and give us the “stare down”. Despite being slightly terrified, Echo was a success. I enjoy shooting towns like Echo because I’m able to document a piece of history that has been worn down with time. [Shot on Portra 160 taken with a Mamiya 645]
