In/Visible Borders:  New Mexico Photographers

One Exhibition/Two Venues!

Marion Center for Photographic Arts/Santa Fe University of Art and Design: September 9 – December 13, 2013; Opening Reception: Monday, September 9th, 4:30 – 6:30. Free and open to the public.

City of Santa Fe Arts Commission’s Community Gallery: November 22, 2013 – February 21, 2014: Opening Reception: Friday, November 22nd, 5 – 7 PM. Free and open to the public.

Curated by Mary Anne Redding, chair of the photography department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, In/Visible Borders: New Mexico Photographers, examines the contemporary New Mexico landscape in terms of the cultural, political, and economic realities of life in the 21st century along the borderlands between the United States and Mexico. The exhibit investigates the organic and often hidden borderlands that define the state of New Mexico and the greater Southwest; issues addressed included not only the physical border between two countries or those delineating various southwestern states, but also other less tangible borders – those of politics, economics, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender relationships, neighborhood delineations, astronomical communication, environmental concerns, the homestead act and manifest destiny.  We live quietly and sometimes not so quietly with these issues in our day-to-day lives; often they are addressed in passing, sometimes they explode.

In/Visible Borders: New Mexico Photographers will be held jointly (although not concurrently) at the Marion Center for Photographic Arts at SFUAD and the Community Gallery at the Santa Fe Convention Center. Each venue provides a safe place to explore the, sometimes contentious, issues through the artwork on view and related programming. 19 photographers from across New Mexico are showing work that deals with the various social issues that make up life in the southwest. Each photographer shows 4 photographs; two at the Marion Center and 2 at the Community Gallery.

The Southwestern Landscape

The American Southwest has long attracted artists eager to record its magnificent forms, light, and spirit. Photographers such as Timothy O’Sullivan, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, Eliot Porter, Laura Gilpin, and contemporary master David Michael Kennedy have traveled the deserts and mountains of New Mexico to make images of this magical place.

David’s approach to landscape photography focuses on the photographer’s relationship to the land. On daily field trips down back roads, we search for the elusive magic that lies beyond the obvious. David prefers to “chase the light” rather than plan a definite itinerary, because you never know how New Mexico’s ever-changing weather will affect the light and the skies. Designed for the serious photographer, the schedule includes discussions of technical information, demonstrations, and critiques, as well as one-on-one sessions with each participant.

Through long but enjoyable hours exploring and photographing the New Mexico landscape and the spirit that lives within it, participants arrive at their own personal discovery and visual interpretation of Mother Earth.

Santa Fe Photographic Workshop Environmental Portraits ?with David Michael Kennedy

February 20 – February 26 2011

TUITION: $1,175 FEES: $170 Model, Location, and Speaker Fee
Call us at 505.983.1400 x11.
or call David at: 575-581-9504
“An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject’s usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject’s life and surroundings.” definition by Wikipedia
This workshop is for photographers who want to push beyond this definition to explore portraiture in new and challenging ways, gain insight into non-traditional ways of designing portraits, and discover creative modes of expanding their personal vision.
The week includes two days of traveling as a group to “off the grid” locations, where we have the opportunity to photograph many of the interesting people that David has come to know in his 25 years in Northern New Mexico. Initially, we work as a group, with David providing a demonstration of his approach. We learn how to focus our attention on every aspect of a portrait session, including finding a pathway into your subject’s spirit and enabling them to relax, feel safe, and trust you enough to give you the gift of a true and honest portrait. Then, we work individually with the portrait subjects specially selected for this workshop. The remaining time consists of daily assignments, critiques, and personal one-on-one sessions with David in the classroom.
Plan on long days and nights of hard work. This is an intense workshop where you are encouraged to break the rules. By breaking rules, you discover your own personal marriage of technique, style, and craziness, to help you redefine your outlook on portraiture and life.
