History

This book is a photographic documentation of Hispanic New Mexicans (Nuevomexicanos) taken between 1981 and 1983 in Albuquerque and Santa Fe and in several northern New Mexico villages. While there is an insider intimacy to the photographs in this book, they have a gritty sense of reality that is neither disturbing nor challenging. The people, whether looking directly into the lens or away from it, appear to be at ease with the photographer and his camera. Many of these photographs are timeless, while others are a time capsule of the early eighties in New Mexico. This collection will evoke nostalgia of the era and life in New Mexico "back in the day." There is also a universality about the images and time period that will appeal to wider audiences.

During Mary Cabot Wheelwright’s long reign at Los Luceros, it was visited by New Mexico’s prominent writers, artists, and art patrons, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and D.H. Lawrence. During the past decade, the property was acquired by the State of New Mexico to be managed by New Mexico Historic Sites as a living museum.
