Boots & Books

Boots & Books

A current project involves creating promotional materials for a new 501c3 non-profit organization, the International Shakespeare Center, Santa Fe (ISC).

One of the goals of ISC is to promote the study and appreciation of the Shakespearean works through reading groups, professional performance, and professional training.

The photos are meant to show a juxtaposition of Shakespearean imagery and iconic Santa Fe imagery. So far I've photographed a cowboy in a Canyon Road art gallery (including Shakespearean props) and a cowgirl, Denise, at her hacienda in Galisteo, a small village south of Santa Fe. Other shoots are planned at a historic, iconic Santa Fe house and at Los Golondrinas, a living museum ranch that was the last overnight stop for wagon trains from Mexico City before reaching Santa Fe.

The image above is a sepia version of one of many shots from the Galisteo photo session. Most of the Galisteo photos feature both Denise and her beloved horse, Sapphire.
