Speak to Me

Cross in the Landscape. Near Velarde, New Mexico, 2016.

These things speak of New Mexico to me: distant mountains, overhead wires, low hills, low scrub, clear blue skies, clear golden sunlight, wooden fenceposts, wooden crosses.

It’s not an exhaustive list for sure, there are other things too of course.  But photography is the art of subtraction, taking things out of the frame until only the essential of the subject remains.  That’s what I’ve done here – removing element after element until the only things remaining in this view of the New Mexico landscape are those that speak to me about it.
