In honor of ASMP’s (American Society of Media Photographers) 75th anniversary, the New Mexico chapter and Edition One Gallery are pleased to present the member’s exhibition – A Contemporary Look at Childhood in New Mexico featuring photographic works by: Evalyn Bemis, Tony Bonanno, Mark Berndt, Clay Ellis, Cable Hoover, Lisa Kantor, Richard Khanlian, Sabra LaVaun, Douglas Magnus, Gabriella Marks, Daniel Quat, Gail Marie Odom, Peter Ogilvie, Irene Owsley, Jane Phillips, Ward Russell, Steven St. John, Sally Thomson, and Don Usner. Jurors: Pilar Law, Director/Owner, Edition One, John McCauley, Art Director of New Mexico Magazine, and Jennifer Schlesinger, Director/Owner of Obscura Gallery. A Contemporary Look at Childhood in New Mexico is focused on the experience of growing up in New Mexico, and is reflective of our state’s own unique combination of cultural, physical, and historical characteristics. The exhibition considers the complex reality of contemporary childhood shaped by diverse cultures and set in the vast and varied New Mexican landscape. We asked our membership of professional photojournalists, commercial, editorial, and fine art photographers to search through their archives to show us images made over the last 20 years that best reflect their perceptions of childhood in New Mexico, either through observation or their own personal experiences.
The ASMP member exhibition will run concurrently at El Zaguán with The Once and Future Child: A Photographic History of Childhood in New Mexico, an exhibit presented by the Historic Santa Fe Foundation and curated by Searchlight New Mexico, that draws upon the earliest artifacts of photography in the state. A Contemporary Look at Childhood in New Mexico is also a part of CENTER’s Review Santa Fe Photo Festival, and benefits the Child Counseling Center and Play Therapy Institute of New Mexico.
