Alex Harris

A Portrait of Northern New Mexico

Documentary Photographer Alex Harris began creating images of Northern New Mexico in the 1970s, exploring how the interiors and exteriors of homes and vehicles expressed people’s lives in their particular place. This exhibition features a selection of nearly three dozen photographs from Harris’ series Red White Blue and God Bless You, taken between 1979 and 1988, and completed as a book project in 1992. Through intimate views of exuberant lived spaces within these Hispanic American rural communities the artist presents his experience of the cultural landscape.
