Venus, New Mexico
May 1976

Looking out on the San Pedro mountains in New Mexico from this hayloft I dreamt of becoming a physician, of living in exciting places far from the ranch. I grew up mostly on my own on a ranch in Northern New Mexico.

This barn is gone now. Venus does not exist any more, it is a ghost of a ghost town. It is the name on a street sign in the subdivision that our ranch has become. Thirty years on, thirty years living away from New Mexico, I now dream of returning to this home, now gone.


Basta cominciare a non accetare il proprio stato presente e chissamai dove s'arriva. -Calvino

(Once you begin denying your present state, there's no telling where you'll end up.)

About this photo: This was shot on Kodacolor 100. The neg was scanned in with a Nikon coolscan 5000, with very little post processing.

This really looks great...it's an interesting picture with a real story, which is always good. The almost-silhouette-but-not-quite effect is perfect.
