Habitats — 1983-1985
These images were made for the National Endowment for the Arts Survey, exhibition and book, called The Essential Landscape, organized by photography curator Steve Yates at the New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts. These color images are from three sites in New Mexico chosen to exemplify different dwelling modes — the Native American Pueblo, the rural Hispanic village, and the ranch complex. These places were in varying stages of old age and disuse. The exposures were made in sequences because these places seemed to exist at once in the past, present, and future — each with its own fiction as well as reality.
