The Walking Woman is an extended portrait of two women, both on the cusp of invisibility in the American Southwest, braided together in a parable of banishment and atonement. In her lyrical approach to the photographic narrative, Berkeley documents the parallel lives of two strangers, Ruth and Spice, against the sacred beauty of the desert landscape. In doing so, she raises environmental concerns alongside feminist ones, suggesting both to be the products of a capitalist and paternalistic society.
