"newborns scream their arrivals, and fathers with wrist chains and tattoos cling to their little loves in parks, and the circle widens and expands and ripples toward every closed gate, with tribal drums beating, gourds blowing and rattles rattling we are here, we are here, we are here" – New Mexican poet, Jimmy Santiago Baca

Northern New Mexico is a complex weave of pride and history. In this region of ancient traditions and striking environmental and ethnic diversity, documentary photographer Norman Mauskopf has spent the last decade photographing the Hispanic people and their culture. The photographs that emerged depict the intersection of religion, injustice, community, and transcendence. – Twin Palms Publishers
this subject is very exiting , isn't it ?
and the photos are incredible good.
WOW! Great images.
Lovely post...this poet is mind moving with his words...I can see the faces of the people without having the photo in front of me. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
I would not have known that this was in the United States if you hadn't told me.
I adore your work!
Really wonderful work. As one of the above commentators said, its hard to believe these were taken here in the U.S.
beautiful work from an Art Center Alumnus.
