Chops Hancock: Many Faces of the Desert

William "Chops" Hancock lives in Winona, Minn., and is a semi-retired freelance photographer who works on projects that interest him both near and far. He has led a family citrus business in central Florida and worked as a photographer for National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, USA Today, Gannett Newspapers and many other publications.

He moved to Winona when he married his wife, Diana, and now serves on the Board of Directors of the Winona State University Foundation and the Mayo Foundation.

When he heard about the Winona State University Travel Study project to the Navajo Nation, he wanted to participate to record and document the activities of the students and the beauty of the people and the land.

This blog post contains a photo collection by Chops Hancock that he calls "Many Faces of the Desert."

Several of these images are from the Chuska Mountains near Tsaile, Lukachukai and Cove, Arizona; a few are from around Window Rock, Arizona; several were created in Canyon Del Muerto, the northern fork of Canyon de Chelly in Arizona; and a few were taken in Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Chaco Canyon, near Nageezi, New Mexico.
