Where: New Mexico History Museum Auditorium, 113 Lincoln Avenue, Santa Fe
Co-sponsors: VERVE Gallery of Photography, Photo Archives/Palace of the Governors and photo-eye Books

Northern New Mexico is a complex weave of pride and history. In this region of ancient traditions and striking environmental and ethnic diversity, Norman Mauskopf has spent the last decade photographing the Hispanic people and their culture. The photographs that emerged depict the intersection of religion, injustice, community, and transcendence.

A Closer Look - Jackpot

"Jackpot is Kevin Landers' 17 year retrospective and it is coming out at a time when the photo world is just now paying their due respects to this newly discovered artist. Published by MTV Press (that's right... the company that was once dedicated to music) Jackpot displays a gritty, humorous and very real portrait of New York City, a completely unique view on a city that has been the inspiration for so many great street photographers and creative minds." — Antone Dolezal

A Closer Look - Sketches


"Sketches, Polaroids of Africa (2002-2010) by Viviane Sassen is a special little book. A collection of Polaroids from Sassen's many years and projects in Africa, the images are a wonderful insight into her process and vision. These Polaroids were taken as test shots, used to feel out the image before taking a final photograph, and are, as the title implies, sketches. The relationship between the images in this book and Sassen's publication Flamboya are clear, and even includes a few test shots for images that made it into the book." — Sarah Bradley

from the book Invisible
from the book Invisible

Invisible by Trevor Paglen

"Radical transparency is chic at the moment, hence Juilan Assange's ridiculous celebrity. I was dubious, at first, about the WikiLeaks firestorm. But then the Tunisian people revolted, in part because they read of their leader's disgusting decadence in some of the cables Assange leaked. So my mind opened.

Trevor Paglen's new book is a visual extension of that determined mission: to make visible the invisible, to do the dirty work and heavy lifting for the lazy masses, content not to know what we don't know. It's a pretty fascinating collection of information, both photographic and written." — from the review by Jonathan Blaustein of Trevor Paglen's Invisible

BellyBandBooks: Little Journey Series 1-4

"Munich's Bellybandbooks offers the Little Journey series as its first project. The goal of the series is humbly stated as being two or three books a year, each containing a series of photographs shot over a short span of time and having "an emotional effect." The first four little books of this series certainly meet this goal. Each slim volume consists of eight two-page spreads printed full-bleed and a self-portrait signed by the photographer. Little Journey proves the depth possible from a simple theme when it is well curated, and each book provides a unique and immersive emotional moment. The simple heavy card-stock covers and slightly lustery surface of the printed pages are equally enjoyable frameworks, and the precise uniformity of presentation assures the collectible feel of the series." — from the review by Nicholas Chiarella of BellyBandBook's Little Journey Series 1-4
