Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Contemporary photographers living and working in New Mexico have tall boots to fill following Timothy O'Sullivan, Ansel Adams, and Paul Strand, among countless others. That historical backdrop is nicely illustrated in this volume's introductory essay by Stuart Ashman, cabinet secretary of the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs. The innovative contemporary scene is surveyed through the curatorial efforts of Barrow (photography, emeritus, Univ. of New Mexico) and journalist Kristin Barendsen, who contributes profiles of 25 artists, including such well-known photographers as Paul Caponigro, Betty Hahn, Joan Myers, Patrick Nagatani, and Joel-Peter Witkin. The profiles are supplemented by seven to eight full-page photographs of each photographer and biographical details that document each artist's major exhibitions, awards, and book publications. The range of photographic techniques and subjects is wide, from black-and-white photograms to elaborate mixed-media collages. The diversity of themes, from environmental degradation to the impact of the nuclear weapons industry to Chicana identity, extends far beyond the regional. Highly recommended for most academic libraries and larger public libraries with an interest in the Southwest and photography.
—Nancy B. Turner
