Worth A Look

USA Today has an article in its travel section, 25 must-see buildings in New Mexico.  The list was compiled by the local American Institute of Architects.  The best known and most photographed of the group is likely San Francisco de Asis Mission Church in Taos, most famously pictured by Paul Strand.

It is a pretty good list, though I'm sure some useful additions might be made, such as the Special Collections Library in Albuquerque which I recently shot with my Foth Derby.  I suppose every New Mexico photographer has a picture of the KIMO Theater.  Some time ago I made some pictures with my Ansco Folding Buster Brown of UNM's Zimmerman Library.

I traveled to New Mexico on business several times a month throughout the 1990s. Other than my client's office and the Albuquerque Sunport, I never got to see much of anything else. A shame.

Clearly overdue for another visit. Happy to put the spare bedroom at your disposal any time.
