Adobe has been four years in the making and it continues to evolve over time.  This photo journey explores several iconic adobe structures in Taos and Ghost Ranch located in Northern New Mexico.  It  examines how natural shade and sunlight create the perception of depth on the textured adobe surfaces, while the smooth edges guide a visual path through each photograph.  In addition the gradient balance of the shadows and highlights on curvilinear adobe buildings create an emotional sense of calmness that is indicative of New Mexico's unique charm.  The native Pueblo people for over a 1000 years choose to live and view their role with nature as not separate, but as a part of it.  The Adobe series focuses awareness of these human built structures as connected to the natural world and not as separate obtrusive human shelters.   The concept of how to live with the natural environment continues to permeate the modern psyche of the people who live there. This is what makes Northern New Mexico an enchanted landscape.

The structures examined in the Adobe series are the Agape Worship Center located on the grounds of Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM, the San Francisco de Asis Church in Taos, NM, and San Geronimo de Taos in the Taos Pueblo.
