Santa Fe photographer Ford Robbins presents images that speak of his journey through
the land over many decades. His love of the land in its various manifestations is acutely
present in each image he creates. Land, sky, water, and architecture mark the paths he
has taken, the connections he has found and recorded. Such are the memories
documented in this deeply engaging book of black-and-white photographs. As we view
the breadth of Robbins's work, the vivid, the austere, and the sensual, we may find
ourselves reconnecting with sensual or temporal memories of our own. In this book
Robbins invites us to come with him and enjoy the delights of the world around us.
'Texture and the abstracted nature of (Robbins's) selective focus creates surfaces many
painters would envy. This is the artist's eye at work ...to use the reality of material
existence as a way to break through the limits of time and place.“—The Santa Fe New
“… a love affair with light across America.”—The Bloomsbury Review
