Discover Salvation Mountain
Photos, videos, books, and aritcles
"Years ago I went to Salvation Mountain with a group of friends. I immediately took a liking to Leonard Knight, the man who brought the mountain to life. Over the years I would capture his stories though video and photos. In 2014 Leonard passed away. I always loved hanging out with Leonard at the mountain and now I found a way to bring him back so that others can experience the mountain with him." - Corey Petrick
"For twenty-five years, Leonard Knight poured mud over hay bales, tossed in the odd tire or windowpane, and painted the words God Is Love over and over on the adobe-like structure that resulted. His Salvation Mountain is essentially a massive pile of sculpted dirt in a weird part of the scorching Mojave. And yet it draws people."
"This week America lost one of its greatest living folk artists, a man who I had photographed many times, a man who had become my friend. His name was Leonard Knight, and he was the artist who built the monumental work known as Salvation Mountain..."
