Hildale • The best shots are often just out of reach in the predominantly FLDS community of Hildale.

Great documentary photography usually involves a trusting relationship and good rapport between the photographer and subject. That trust takes time to build and you can't do that from a moving car.

In between building those relationships with people, the details of the community have often drawn my attention along the backroads of Hildale. In this case, the signs reading "Zion" placed over the doors of families still loyal to Warren Jeffs in Hidale and Colorado City, Ariz.

Here are ten of my favorite "Zion" signs.
