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.

Journalism

© 2019

From 2004 to 2009, the Albuquerque Journal North ran the ¡ÓRALE! SANTA FE column by Santa Fe native and veteran journalist Arnold Vigil. The editor gave carte blanche to Vigil in his selection of topics ranging from encounters with locals and tourists to social commentary about changes that have taken place over the years. Santa Fe Different is a compilation of Vigil’s favorite columns, mostly standing the test of time. Santa Fe is ever-changing but remains a little big town―a major arts center, tourist destination, and the seat of New Mexico government.

This posthumously published bilingual novel by Jim Sagel (1947–1998), whose unique genre of writing about Nuevomexicano culture and mastery of New Mexican Spanish was dubbed “Chicanesque,” reenacts the traditional Christmas play, Los pastores, as the backdrop for a parallel story set in the fictional New Mexican village of San Buenaventura. Ultimately, Sagel spins a tale intended to make us laugh even as we cry—much as life does. San Buenaventura’s people suffer brutal blows that sometimes (or often) knock them senseless, struggling to regain their footing, and seeing stars. They do so even as they live under a guiding star.
