I met Dave & Lizzie a few weeks back while exploring Slab City, California. Slab City is an abandoned military base turned squatters camp in the middle of the desert near the Salton Sea. It’s been dubbed as “The Last Free Place” because there’s no cost to live in Slab City…the only rules are that you respect your neighbors and stay off each others slabs. During the winter months Slab City gets more populated with travelers but few are brave enough to withstand the summers where the temps often reach 120 degrees. Dave & Lizzie have been living there full time since 2003.

Here’s a few shots of Dave & Lizzie. A couple are from earlier in the day but then I revisited at sunset to get that nice golden hour light. I also captured a few video clips with them might have to head back there soon to do a more thorough documentary.
