Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby


Limited quantity; available while supplies last.

For more than twenty years, Craig Varjabedian has explored and photographed the red cliffs and sweeping plains of the fabled 21,000-acre Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico. In Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby, he shares more than 100 new black-and-white photographs capturing its evanescent light. These images reach beyond familiar ideas associated with the Ranch—such as its renown as a site of personal renewal and transformation, and as the longtime home of twentieth-century painter Georgia O’Keeffe—into Varjabedian’s singular vision of his subject and its ties to ideas of identity, place, and perception.

To further illuminate the experience of Ghost Ranch, Varjabedian gathered essays to accompany his photographs, including an “appreciation” of Ghost Ranch written by Georgia O’Keeffe, an evocative introduction by photographer Jay Packer, and essays by Marin Sardy, Belden C. Lane, Douglas A. Fairfield, and Rob Craig.
