Texas photographer Walter Nelson has published a new book about the New Mexican landscape where artist Georgia O’Keefe painted.
Nelson points to a map of New Mexico as he traces the route of artist O’Keefe, who made her name in the early part of last century with her landscape paintings of the state. “I went in 30 years ago in search of the Black Place,” says Nelson. “You know, it’s a very elusive place. No one knew exactly where it was 30 years ago, except Georgia O’Keefe.”
