*** WINNER--BEST ART BOOK, NEW MEXICO-ARIZONA BOOK AWARD ***

This collection of elegantly composed black-and-white images by one of New Mexico's most accomplished photographers, celebrates the state's captivating physical variety and enduring allure. With subject matter ranging from some of the state's most iconic landforms--including the White Sands desert and Carlsbad Caverns--to the people who work the land, Varjabedian's images pay homage to New Mexico's ancient history and to the homely details of everyday life. In photographing his subjects, whether epic or mundane, Varjabedian seeks the moments when the light, shadow, composition, and other elements combine to express the beauty of the place.
Marin Sardy's wide-ranging essay provides historical and cultural contexts in which to understand Varjabedian's work. Scholar-poet Jeanetta Calhoun Mish defines the particular quality of the artist's imagery.

From the Back Cover:

Craig Varjabedian's photographs of the American West illuminate his profound connection with the region and its people. In 1991, Varjabedian received an Emmy award for the PBS film about his photographic work titled En Divina Luz: The Penitente Moradas of New Mexico. Several books of his photographs have been published by the University of New Mexico Press and include En Divina Luz: The Penitente Moradas of New Mexico (1994), Four & Twenty Photographs: Stories from Behind the Lens (2007), Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby (2009) which received a prestigious Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. He is represented by the Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe and New York, and the Afterimage Photograph Gallery in Dallas, Texas. You can view more of his photographs at craigvarjabedian.com

Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, a writer, scholar, professor, and editor of Mongrel Empire Press, earned her Ph.D. in American Studies at the University of Oklahoma, where she teaches creative writing. Her book Work Is Love Made Visible won the Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Oklahoma Book Award for poetry, and the WILLA Award for poetry.

Hampton Sides is a New York Times best-selling author of Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission, which has sold more than a million copies worldwide, Blood and Thunder: The Epic Story of Kit Carson and the Conquest of the American West, and Hellhound on His Trail: The Electrifying Account of the Largest Manhunt in American History, an investigation of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
Marin Sardy, a freelance cultural critic, essayist, and editor has written for numerous periodicals as diverse as ARTnews, and Outside magazines. A former editor in chief of Santa Fean magazine, she holds an MA in Liberal Studies from Dartmouth College and an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia University.

From the Inside Flap:

Craig Varjabedian's photographs, made over the nearly three decades that he has lived and worked in New Mexico, range over all the image-making forms--landscape, portrait, and still life-- to offer a remarkably complete, varied, and original portrait of what many call The Land of Enchantment. White sand desert, cloud-capped peaks, ancient adobe ruins, groves of autumn cottonwoods all find their place here. Intimate, personal, and yet iconic, the photographs capture a land and its people in a collection that will be warmly welcomed by those who already love New Mexico but serve also as an inviting introduction for newcomers to its diverse and captivating uniqueness.

Fittingly, the ninety photographs, all beautifully presented in elegant duotone reproductions, celebrate the hundred years of New Mexico's statehood begun in 1912. Here, paired with images of Native American sites that go back to earlier millennia, such as the ruins at Bandelier National Monument, are artifacts of the modern world, like the familiar outline of a pump jack in an oil patch and a low-rider Cadillac outside the wall that protects the El Santuario de Chimayo.

Complementing the eloquent pictures are three essays by New Mexico writers whose intimacy with and affection for the land are no less deep than the photographer's. Marin Sardy writes knowledgably and feelingly of the history of the state, and the ways in which many other writers of the past have captured its allure, its mystery, and its kaleidoscopic reality. Jeanetta Calhoun Mish offers a poet's special insights into the particular character of Varjabedian's photographs. Hampton Sides, a New York Times best-selling author who transcends in his own writing the mundane recitation of fact, offers an appreciation of Craig Varjabedian's true gifts and urges the reader/viewer to "Take time to savor this careful distillation of the real New Mexico."
