Image New Mexico 2015 is Just Around the Corner

Image New Mexico 2015, begun by Pat Berrett and Tim Anderson, will be held again this year at Matrix Fine Art, which has hosted the show for the past several years. This is a juried photography show, and there are no restrictions on where the photographers live, but the images must have been created in New Mexico in the last two years. I am pleased to be showing two images this year, ‘The Observer/The Observed’ and ‘Harry’s Pearl’s,’ the latter from the series, ‘Living Jewels.’

Regular readers here have seen ‘The Observer/The Observed’ before. I created the image for myself in the dark days of January 2015, and did not intend to show it. But, after writer, fellow anthropologist, and friend Jim Stallings wrote a poem about it as a gift to me and my family, I decided to show it. It was in Insight New Mexico – Through Her Eyes and is currently on display at the University of New Mexico Continuing Education North Building until August 15.

‘The Observer/The Observed’

Spontaneous Poem from a Treetop Crow

In the lofty life of a wise old crow
Swaying in the topmost backyard branches
Like a magical clock counting down mortality’s coil,
May it not be in some secret way
We the awed observers
Have all along been honored by a wiser watcher?

– Jim Stallings

The second image is from my ‘Living Jewels’ series. Flower arrangers are quite familiar with the dwarf tree, Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick. This spring, here in Albuquerque, Harry put on an outstanding display of male catkins. I have titled this image ‘Harry’s Pearls.’

    1. Hi, Tim! I hope you can can be there!
      This is ‘the invitation’ for this event – but I’ll be sending a note. They are all different!
      Hope to see you and Laurie!

      1. I’m off July 3rd for the 4th, and we have a parking permit for UNM (we can do a park and walk), so it’s not much trouble other than the drive into town.

  1. Susan, this is great! My Danish friends will be here! I have reservations for First Friday Fractals at 6:00 at the Natural History Museum. It’s over by 7:00pm. Will you be at the gallery until 8:00?

    1. Hi, rndthwrld14 ๐Ÿ˜‰ !
      That is my plan at the moment, and I would love to see you and meet your Danish friends!
