“Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference.” -Robert Frank
Women of Taos
"Lists. More lists. In notebooks. In different notebooks… On scraps of paper. A mental note. Some are there Some are new. I see you in the grocery store and ask. You say yes, it works out. I ask you, You forget Or must work. I ask you, You say no, I move on. I ask you And you say how soon? I want to ask you and you And every woman I meet. Ordinary women Out of the ordinary women Women of Taos. We are complex and simple all at once. We want to be seen and yet we don’t. I glimpse your true nature, but only as much as you allow. I am exhilarated having had this intimate connection, when I’ve captured a moment in time that expresses this extraordinary person in her ordinary life."-Kathleen Brennan
These portraits were done in conjunction with the Remarkable Women of Taos events for the 2012 season. Desiree Manville and I collaborated to present some of the extraordinary women that make up the backbone of this community. A show was held in late Sept. 2012 at Manville photography studio. To see Desiree’s portraits go to Manville Photography. I continue to add women as I go along.
