“I have always felt a deep connection to historical landscapes that shaped the Southwestern United States. The grand sense of scale and unforgiving lands are a constant reminder that this section of the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, the Royal Road to the Interior Lands, has changed little in over three centuries.”

Emmitt Booher is a Native New Mexican. He spent his childhood on a ranch, which instilled a lifelong appreciation of the landscape, history and people of New Mexico. Emmitt’s training with film based cameras, including 4x5 field cameras, and darkroom processing proved invaluable as he transitioned to digital processes and archival pigment ink printing. Emmitt’s black and white imagery remains the basis of his work as he incorporates digital alternative printing processes and infrared photography into his portfolio. The representation of photography as art is of primary importance in his work. In 2016, he was selected as the first photographic Artist-in-Residence to represent the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument in New Mexico. Emmitt's work has been exhibited throughout the Southwest and is held in public and private collections nationally. To learn more, visit zoneVIII.com.

"The print, Gellért Baths, Budapest –1983, is an archival reproduction of an original gold and platinum toned kallitype on Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm paper. The century-old Hotel Gellért, in Budapest, Hungary, is renowned for its myriad thermal baths, the Gellért fürdő, which devotees believe are effective for healing a variety of diseases and illnesses. The bath in this image, so I was told, is effective for physiological maladies of the reproductive organs. The baths were originally built upon the site of a Middle Ages hospital, and later, Turkish healing springs during the 16th and 17th centuries at the apex of the Ottoman Empire. The Art Nouveau/Roman influences of the baths were restored, following heavy damage during World War II, and were designed to bestow a psychological and physiological state of peacefulness and calm to those who invested 5 cents for a yellow bathing cap, and a tiny towel, before slowly immersing themselves in the thermal pools."

Rough Legged Hawk, from Wendi’s States of Grace series, was captured on a drive through the plains east of Denver in 2012. The series illuminates beauty to silence chaos, capturing the ephemeral movement of light on graceful, organic forms and sharing the stillness of a suspended moment. Most of the images are layered with color and texture to balance the real and the imagined, then printed on translucent vellum. White gold leaf is applied behind the image, suffusing the subjects with spirituality and sanctity of the precious metal. 

Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist, raised in Memphis, whose sensual photographs are inspired by a background in painting, art history and the lush Southern landscape. She turned to photography in the early ‘80s to capture moments of her models, delicately layering the prints with oils to create a more personal interpretation. After a career in editorial and advertising photography, art direction, and design in New Orleans, New York and Denver, she recently returned to fine art photography, creating luminous, layered images of figura, flora and fauna. Gilded vellum prints from her current series have been exhibited, collected, awarded and published internationally. To learn more, visit wendischneider.com.

"This image is from a series titled Purgatory Road—a project that chronicles my experimentation with the photographic medium, while exploring the fragility of the natural world. The photograph was captured in-camera on medium format film, while shooting through a plexiglass filter. Rooted in my own concern for the environment, the project draws attention to how perceptions are formed by a sense of place and reflects upon our instinctual desire to connect with the physical world." 

Krista Steinke is a lens-based artist whose work explores the human environmental relationship. She has exhibited in museums and galleries across the country, as well as internationally. Awards include a Pennsylvania Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, a grant from the Puffin Foundation, a Promise Award from the Sustainable Arts Foundation and a Howard Foundation Fellowship in Photography. Her works are represented in The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Woodmere Museum in Philadelphia, Brauer Museum of Art, Johnson & Johnson Corporation and Fidelity Investments, among others.  Currently, Krista resides in the Houston area with her husband and two kids. To learn more, visit kristasteinke.com.

"Having spent much of my youth in urban areas, Washington D.C., Austin and Dallas, I find it strange to be so drawn to the expanses of West Texas, specifically The Llano Estacado. It encompasses the northeastern part of New Mexico and most of the Texas Panhandle, larger than the state of Indiana."

In the 16th century, Spanish conquistadors searching for cities of gold got lost in this area because of the flatness and lack of geographical reference points. So they made their own, piling up bison dung and the few sticks they could find, to provide some sense of direction. Thus, the Staked Plains were born.

The oceanic grasslands have pretty much disappeared, but the flatness of the earth and the winds remain constant. Nineteen Hay Bales is the artist's take on a modern-day stake, giving us a reference point. Metaphorically, the image also comments on our current social condition. 

Ashton Thornhill is a former photojournalist who taught photography at Texas Tech University for 29 years. Now retired, his work is included in numerous public and private collections and has been exhibited extensively across the country. To learn more, visit ashtonthornhill.com.
