Vintage New Mexico

 

Vintage photos spanning 50 years, by two of New Mexico’s longtime residents and photographic chroniclers, Lisa Law and Ray Belcher, are on exhibit this summer at Edition One Gallery. Both photographers offer insight into lands and residents of New Mexico. The exhibition features a selection of one-of-a-kind prints.

 

Lisa Law has photographed the shifting tides of American culture. Her photography often reflects a sense of intimacy and spontaneity. Law is known for chronicling the era of hippie migration from the West and East coasts to New Mexico, along with their intersections with elders from Taos Pueblo and the communities of Truchas, El Rito, Abiquú and Santa Fe.

 

Ray Belcher came from California to Santa Fe in the mid-1970s, having earned a National Endowment for the Arts grant, which he used to travel and photograph. Belcher is one of the few photographers who still utilize the black-and-white silver-gelatin printing process. His work focuses primarily on the skies and landscapes of Galisteo and Santa Fe.

 

The exhibition runs through July 21, 2017. Edition One Gallery is at 1036 Canyon Road in Santa Fe. For more information, call 505.570.5385, email info@editionone.gallery.com, or visit www.editionone.gallery
