"New Mexico - Portraits & Profiles"
Photographs by WES NAMAN
Foreword by FERNANDO DELGADO

DECEMBER, 2016

PUBLISHED! - New Mexico - Portraits & Profiles is here! I was honored to write the Foreword to this wonderful volume created by fellow photographer Wes Naman and his team.

EXCERPT:
“We come and go, but the land is always here. And the people who love it and understand it are the people who own it—for a little while.” The words from Willa Cather’s O Pioneers! could be the anthem that heralds this much-anticipated modern portrait of New Mexico.
Wrapped in the enduring beauty of the desert landscape, you find its people. Generations of families linked to the heritage and identity of the land live alongside new faces from around the corner and around the world. Those who appreciate being one with nature, and understand and respect the union of history and traditions that exists here, are welcome to stay and call this place home. Nuestra casa es su casa.

"Exhibit A" - 15 Year Anniversary

"Exhibit A - Guy Bourdin"
OCTOBER 2001 - OCTOBER 1016

15 years ago Exhibit A - Guy Bourdin was published by Bulfinch Press in The United States, Great Britain and France. I was co-author, curator and designer of this landmark volume.
Much earlier in the 80s, I was introduced to the master via the pages of Vogue Paris and the revolutionary advertising for Charles Jourdan shoes. I fell in love.
Bourdin died in 1991 after a long and illustrious photography career that dates back to 1955. He seldom printed, exhibited or published his work, beyond the magazine page. By his own design, his death was the culmination of a masterfully orchestrated vanishing act.
Samuel Bourdin (his son) and I connected in the late 90s and a long and lasting friendship began. We decided to do the book that Bourdin would have wanted but was afraid to pursue. I spent a summer in Paris going through 54 boxes of material retrieved from storage after the estate was settled. Several months were also spent at the FIT Library crafting his chronology and curating the 100 images that we ultimately selected, for publication. I brought the idea to Carol Judy Leslie and her publishing team at Bulfinch... and the rest is history.
I am honored to have been part of this dream project. I am proud that it celebrates Guy Bourdin's genius and secures his rightful place in the history of the visual arts.
Salut Monsieur Bourdin!
