One Man Show

The new Santa Fe Camera Center located at 851 St. Michael's Drive will be hosting an exhibit of selected black and white images from Friday, August 25 through September 16, 2006. Entitled Compositions in Black and White the show will display twenty five photographs taken in the last three years in northern New Mexico and New England.

Subjects include sensuously rendered butternut squash, silvery railroad mechanicals, abstracted sand dunes and empty expanses of eastern New Mexico plains among others. The photographs exemplify characteristics of richness, luminosity, tonal range and clarity.

There will be an opening reception on Friday evening, August 25 between 5 and 7:30pm.

Special show prices will be available for the run of the show both at the gallery and through my website. www.steveimmelphotography.com

Desert Denizen

Just north of Taos, New Mexico in the village of El Prado several vintage vehicles are artfully strewn as a kind of lawn decor. Among these treasures is the front end of a Dodge pick-up truck from the late 1930's. It's grill or shield glows Darth Vader like against it's burnished red paint. It's handsome, menacing and decaying all at the same time.
