March comes in like a lion or a lamb. Depends on which direction you look. Spring is in the air one day, and the next, a chill and blast of wind reminds you that it is still winter. Still, the light in New Mexico is seductive, and just a simple stop at a red light yields wonders.
Final touches are being put on my new books, but a printing snafu dampened my enthusiasm somewhat. Waiting for re-prints to arrive, but cautiously optimistic that all will look good.
Sickness and health. Anxiety and calmness. Bouncing between different poles, like a raft on the sea.
Fantastic night at Meow Wolf this week, seeing Kurt Vile. Always a thrill seeing an artist in their prime, at the peak of their powers.
Photo podcasts keep me company on long rides to Santa Fe, or when I’m having trouble falling asleep, this one in particular resonated with me. (Episode 100.)
Laura Greenfield’s documentary “Generation Wealth” should be required viewing for anyone registering for a credit card, or considering plastic surgery. Man, is it hard to look in the mirror as a society sometimes.
I am very pleased to announce the release of my new photo book. It is a collaboration with my good friend David Garcia, a wonderful Albuquerque musician and his band, Beloved. The book is a visual interpretation of David's songs. There is a common theme of hope, loss, love and wanderlust between the songs and the photographs. My images are the result of wanderings in the American deserts of Arizona, California, and New Mexico. The book is 8 inch square, 58 pages, soft cover, perfect bound. I have a limited number available for purchase at my online shop starting today. Each book comes with a copy of the Beloved CD release. Get yours today by clicking on this link.
I've also created a new gallery on my website that features the photos I created for the joint project. Check them out here.
