New Mexico Wild & Beautiful

Book Overview
New Mexico: Wild and Beautiful is a dynamic showcase of work by photographer and New Mexico-native Laurence Parent. With an inspired foreword and informative captions by New Mexico Magazine's Emily Drabanski, this collection of photographs serves as timeless tribute to the state affectionately called the Land of Enchantment. Parent's evocative images transport you back in time as you explore the volcanic terrain of El Malpais National Monument; gaze at ancient petroglyphs in Petroglyph National Monument; wander through Ancestral Pueblo ruins at Bandelier National Monument; step inside a seventeenth-century Spanish mission at Pecos National Historical Park; and venture into the Old West at the ghost town of Shakespeare.

From the front Cover New Mexico Wild & Beautiful is a dynamic showcase of work by photographer and New Mexico-native Laurence Parent. With an inspired foreword and informative captions by New Mexico Magazine s Emily Drabanski, this collection of photographs serves as timeless tribute to the state affectionately called the Land of Enchantment. Parent s evocative images transport you back in time as you explore the volcanic terrain of El Malpais National Monument; gaze at ancient petroglyphs in Petroglyph National Monument; wander through Ancestral Pueblo ruins at Bandelier National Monument; step inside a seventeenth-century Spanish mission at Pecos National Historical Park; and venture into the Old West at the ghost town of Shakespeare. It s Parent s ability to capture New Mexico s magical light and dramatic beauty that truly inspire, with images of the snow-capped Sangre de Cristo Mountains awash in pink at sunset; a rainbow arcing over the Gila National Forest; and golden light glancing off of Chimney Rock near the Pedernal mesa.
