O FAIR NEW MEXICO
“It is my hope that from my images, even of places that you know, new visions will leap out at you, offering something deeper. If you listen carefully, New Mexico speaks to you, and that’s what I hope these photographs reveal: a dream of memory and of feeling. If the result is a collection of images that transcends its earthly confines [of the photograph itself], then I will have succeeded.
The dream that is New Mexico still exists, to be sure. It is in the mountains. It is in the desert. It is in the sky. It is home. You have a place.”
