“NINETEEN” documents the funeral procession of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who perished in the infamous Yarnell Fire (Prescott, Arizona) of 2013. These images stand as a reminder of the precious loved ones we have lost and continue to lose battling wildland fires. Furthermore, they ask the over-arching and sensitive question of “responsibility” as we continue to build and expand into more difficult and inhospitable terrain.
