The Couse Foundation congratulates Board member Barbara Sparks on winning the 
2016 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards, Multi-Cultural Subject Category
for her beautiful book Taos: Land, People, Spirit: The Photography of Barbara Sparks

On the auspicious hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Taos Society of Artists, photographer Barbara Sparks has compiled a compelling insider’s collection of works taken over her years as a visitor and resident of one of New Mexico’s most magical places. The book captures the truly breathtaking diversity of the land from its dramatic rift to the beloved mountains said to hold the spirits of the ancients, to the churches and the Pueblo, and to the people–the Native Americans, Hispanics, and Anglos - who live in harmony, working the land, creating art, and keeping the stories of their vast heritage alive.
