Biography

New Mexico

© 2012

In 1977 Margaret Wood was a twenty-four-year-old living an ordinary life in Lincoln, Nebraska. That year her life changed when she went to Abiquiu, a remote village in northern New Mexico, where she began a five-year stay as companion and caretaker to then eighty-nine-year-old Georgia O’Keeffe. There were no sign posts in the village in those years and few markers for a young woman managing the complex role as companion to a woman of O’Keeffe’s stature who nonetheless was now dependent on others to maintain the independent life she had cultivated so fiercely. Wood and O’Keeffe often walked the red hills of Ghost Ranch in early evenings, the place where the artist experienced true freedom. The artist had a reputation of living a secluded life but in fact enjoyed welcoming a host of visitors to her home. Wood shares anecdotes about these social exchanges, along with a treasure trove of stories intimately shared. When Wood's father—the photographer Myron Wood—came to visit, he asked for and received permission to photograph O’Keeffe. A dozen of these historic images, published a decade later in the seminal publication, O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu, are reproduced to complement Margaret Wood’s quiet insights of life spent with O’Keeffe. rn

New Mexico

History

The pulse of Santa Fe, bursting with color and creativity, is depicted in this photographic homage to the City Different. Gene Peach has been photographing Santa Fe for twenty-five years, observing its changes, its traditions and constancy, the vibrancy of its people and celebrations, its natural beauty and style. Summer is the heart of Santa Fe—a kaleidoscope of activity centered downtown on the plaza. Lowriders cruise in their mobile works of art; Native American vendors display their handmade jewelry, pottery, and other traditional arts under the Palace portal; local musicians rock the bandstand for dancing locals. As an art center, Santa Fe is unrivaled; Canyon Road with its cornucopia of galleries; Indian, Spanish, and International Folk Art markets highlight the finest indigenous art and crafts in the world; world-class opera and chamber music fill the summer nights. Autumn is harvest time for red chile, apples, and an array of homegrown festivities kicked off by Fiestas and the burning of Zozobra. Winter brings upland snows to rooftops brightened with the farolitos of Christmas and holiday traditions. Spring observes Holy week pilgrimage and then bursts into color as the acequias begin to run.
