Western end of the United States.

Joan Didion said "California is a place [...] in which the mind is troubled by some buried but ineradicable suspicion that things better work here, because here, beneath the immense bleached sky, is where we run out of continent.”

The first time I set foot California, it felt so far from the truth yet so moving of reality. 

Extremes share a piece of land barely inhabitable yet so full of dreams. 

Dreams supported by symbols that go beyond a bridge up north and a hill down south. 

From San Diego to San Francisco, this is an exploration of how sand turned into gold.
