Stories From the Camera: Reflections on the Photograph, Michele M. Penhall
In this indispensable book, distinguished scholars and artists of the University of New Mexico Art Museum reflect on the pictures from the collection that hold significance to them. Through their own professional and artistic practice, they represent different generations of aesthetic voices and intellectual directions. In addition to iconic works by famous photographers, this book also features less familiar but equally masterful pictures. Together, these essays represent a unique history of photography and this renowned museum.
