A photo almanac chronicling the art of the American Southwest: heritage, historical figures, current practice and iconic works.
Wildsam Photo Almanac: Southwest Art is an ode to the complex and colorful world of art rooted in the region–and the beautiful landscapes that have long inspired artists of all kinds.
The book brings to life iconic figures like Georgia O'Keeffe and contemporary creative forces like Tony Abeyta and Roxanne Swentzell. Interviews, original essays by noted writers, archival and new photography capture the rich past and present, from Indigenous crafts honed over countless generations to a diverse array of young artists striking out in new directions.
"It is a region that lends itself to the creation of beautiful things. It demands a kind of reverence, and for many, that reverence translates into artmaking."
