In this collection of Southwestern images, I have attempted to capture the timeless eloquence and creative ornamentation that is the signature of Northern New Mexico - an experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the United States.
The combination of rich, spacious landscapes and historic structures, along with the strong artistic influences, sensitivities, customs, and talents of the populous and indigenous Americans, creates a unique visual experience for visitors and natives alike.
Once you have explored the back roads, pueblos, Spanish missions, the primordial ruins of the high desert, walked the back streets of Santa Fe, explored the timeless villages of the Jemez mountains and Española valley, and experienced the abundant creative energy of Canyon Road, you will never forget the encounter - and you will return.
The colors, textures, tonal diversity and quality of light makes this New Mexican high desert area a true photographic nirvana. - RCG
