DEAN LEE UHLINGER (1954- )
Fifth generation Californian, of Swiss ancestry. Trained in the school of experience, beginning with his father's camera at the age of thirteen.
I fell in love with the desert southwest at an early age, from watching western movies and the scenic backrounds, like Monument Valley and the Sonoran desert. As soon as I could drive I made the two hour trip from San Diego to the Anza Borrego Desert, and later to the desert and red rock regions of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, etc. I still enjoy traveling all over the west, including the Pacific Coast; but the desert always beckons!
