Photograph Taos! And Northern New Mexico in the Fall of 2014
has been cancelled due to logistic issues.
We are however, taking reservations for 2015.
Truly the Land of Enchantment, photographers will gather and stay at the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos and be able to traverse in all directions for a multitude of photographic opportunities. Whether you are a landscape or a cultural photographer, the diverse offerings within a short distance will provide ample photographic opportunities.
The 2015 workshop schedule will be for a minimum of three full days to explore the northern New Mexico region to include the Taos Pueblo, the Sangre de Christo mountains, the high road from Santa Fe to Taos with its historic villages which are home to artisans and mission churches such as the Santuario de Chimayo, the grand vista of the Rio Grande valley near Espanola, the Rio Grande Gorge, the Cimarron canyon, and a multitude of nearby opportunities.
Taos is central to the visual and cultural definition of New Mexico. Wheeler Peak, the state’s tallest point, towers just east of Taos, while mere miles to the west the Rios Grande y Taos converge within a 1000’ deep canyon.
Accommodations at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House allow you to walk in the artistic history of the United States. From their website (www.mabeldodgeluhan.com):
It’s easy to see why some of the greatest minds of the 20th century were inspired here. Situated at the end of a quiet road not far from the center of town, the house appears much as it did in the days when Mabel admired her views of the sacred Taos Mountain from the third-story solarium. One can only imagine the tantalizing conversations that must have taken place within these walls. After all, Georgia O’Keeffe stayed here. So did D.H. Lawrence, Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, Martha Graham and Carl Jung, among many other notables. As an historic inn and conference center which offers retreat-style meetings and artistic, literary, and personal growth workshops, the Mabel Dodge Luhan House continues to build on its 80-year history of personal, intellectual and artistic ferment.
As a guest of the house expect to enjoy warm adobe charm, early century elegance, and historic relevance. Herringbone vigas, traditional arched doorways, kiva fireplaces, and carved pillars. A welcoming hearth and relaxed ambiance. Panoramic view. Quiet patios and a tree-lined acequia. A full gourmet breakfast will start each day of your stay with us.
Nearby are the Great Sand Dunes national Park, the Abiquiu home of Georgia O’Keeffe, the galleries of Santa Fe.
