Channeling O’Keeffe and Adams in New Mexico: A Photo Essay

By BECKY W. EVANS

Like painter Georgia O’Keeffe and photographer Ansel Adams, I found the light in New Mexico captivating, whether shining on an adobe wall, an evening songbird or a juniper bush in the high desert. After days of hiking in the hills outside Taos, I delighted in viewing O’Keeffe’s paintings of the same sprawling vistas in a new exhibit at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe. O’Keeffe, who lived in New Mexico from 1949 to 1984, said she often featured the blue sky in her paintings “as one is apt to do when one seems to have more sky than earth in one’s world.”
