Dark Beauty: Photographs of New Mexico by Jack Parsons

Dark Beauty features over one hundred photographs by Jack Parsons of New Mexico, culled from his favourite scenes shot over the last twenty-five years. From images of small towns and lonely plains, mountains, rivers, fiestas, and murals to old adobe houses, crumbling walls and dirt roads in Santa Fe, Taos, and elsewhere, it presents a very personal, elegiac vision of the state where he has made his home since the 1970s. These photographs reveal a deep understanding and reverence for a place whose complex, rich history, unique multiculturalism, and unparalleled beauty continue to captivate residents and tourists alike.
