Diesel Fried Chicken and Recent Works by Dan Baeza

“Diesel Fried Chicken and Recent Works” by Dan Baeza

Posted on August 29, 2013

Explore the desert lands of Van Horn, Texas, at our exhibition by Dallas-Ft. Worth-based photographer Dan Baeza. A strong desire to learn about the complexities of landscapes and an interest in documenting West Texas prompted Baeza’s topographic investigation that is “Diesel Fried Chicken.”


The central theme of Baeza’s work investigates an interest in documenting the West Texas region. Since leaving his hometown of Van Horn, Baeza has had a strong desire to learn more about the social and constructed landscapes, the myth and reality, and the past and present of this complex diverse land. Combining his volunteer work with the Clark Hotel Museum and past photographic investigations, Baeza’s current project chronicles his hometown. “Diesel Fried Chicken” is a visual account of the relationships between the historical landscape, twenty-first-century travel, the mythology of the West, and an uncertain future.
