William Davis: Images from the Vault

Taos: magpie at Overland Ranch
William Davis: Images from the Vault

Davis has captured nearly every aspect of Northern New Mexico since 1969. When he began taking pictures in Taos not only was it a different era, but also the art of photography was much different than it is now.

Then, the darkroom was the only way to develop film; the tripod was necessary to capture just the right frame while waiting patiently for just the right light. We take these things for granted in the digital era (which Davis has embraced himself), but you can see the difference in these historical shots. This retrospective will include 30 carefully selected images spanning Davis’s five decades behind the lens in Taos, everything from low riders to landscapes. They are beautiful, iconic and historically important photographs.

Opening reception June 15, 5-7:00pm

The show is up all of June and Davis will be giving a gallery talk Sunday, June 23rd from 2-4pm to offer insight into the experience behind many of these images.
