Iconic portraits and New Mexico landscapes spanning 50 years and featuring a selection of one-of-a-kind vintage prints from each photographers' archives.
Edition ONE Gallery is pleased to be expanding west from Canyon Road to join JFD GALLERY in presenting a rare vintage photography exhibition with two of New Mexico’s premier long time residents and photographic chroniclers, Lisa Law and Ray Belcher. Both photographers offer a deep knowledge of the scenes and residents of New Mexico.
Ray Belcher came to Santa Fe from California in the mid-1970s, having earned a National Endowment for the Arts grant which he used to travel and photograph. A man of true artistic discipline and tradition, Belcher is one of the few photographers who still utilizes the black and white silver gelatin printing process and pursues a life of work based primarily on the skies and landscapes of Galisteo and more recently, Santa Fe.
Lisa Law has spent five decades photographing the shifting tides of American culture. Her reputation is built on photographs unique for their startling sense of intimacy and spontaneity as exhibited in her book of photographs, Flashing on the Sixties. Her documentary film, also entitled Flashing on the Sixties won 4 major awards at film festivals upon its release and has been enjoyed by millions of viewers on Cinemax, The Discovery Channel and PBS. Actor-director Dennis Hopper describedFlashing on the Sixties as “the most compelling, moving documentary of the Sixties”.
Lisa's early New Mexico photographs feature intimate portraits of Dennis Hopper and Janis Joplin. She chronicles the hippie migration from the west and east coasts to New Mexico along with their cultural crossings with the traditional elders of Taos Pueblo, and the communities of Truchas, El Rito, Abiquiu and Santa Fe.
