TAOS Land People Spirit, The Photography of Barbara Sparks


Winner of the 2016 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards, Multi-Cultural Subject Category! On the auspicious hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Taos Society of Artists, the late photographer Barbara Sparks 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. Hardcover, 104 pages
