Overview

New Mexico is a land of mountains, mesas, and valleys, of exotic desert beauty, of wild rivers and pristine wilderness. World-renowned photographer DAVID MUENCH captures this enchanting land full of history and deep cultural roots, the magical quality of light in the forty-ninth state, and its heartbreakingly beautiful landscape. NEW MEXICO: PORTRAIT OF A STATE showcases the pueblos, cliff dwellings, and petroglyphs of the Ancestral Puebloans, the stalactites and stalagmites in Carlsbad Caverns, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and the mighty Rio Grande. In more than one hundred stunning color photos, readers will see a kaleidoscope of hot air balloons floating in a vividly blue sky, the virgin white ski slopes of Taos, the volcanic schooner of Shiprock, and the haunting ruins of the Spanish missions, among many others.

Editorial Reviews

"My primary interest is in photographing with a sense of spirit of the land forms and places, for the land itself-trying to make people aware of the importance of preserving what is wild in its natural state through the viewing of my photographs." David Muench's environmental imperative speaks through these truly breathtaking images of New Mexico's sculpted landscapes.
