“Lookie!...this is a great place. Such MOUNTAINS!!!! Peaks are 13000 feet high - MIT SNOW!!!! Pines Aspins Snow Clouds Burros Swell People...No photographers but me. You gotta see this place before you die.”

Ansel Adams letter to Cedric Wright, Los Gallow, Taos, NM, April 1929

“Today there is thick black sky and snow is falling in the hills. Tomorrow it may be a crystal clear day; the changes of the weather are always startling…Mary Austin gets back in a day or so. We are enjoying every minute of the time, and the people are all so good to us that we feel quite at home. There is an unfolding a perspective of work that seems much, much more than I had ever hoped for…I am certain that New Mexico will keep me half a year at least [in the future] and I shall meet with a great success. The wealth of material is beyond belief.

Ansel Adams letter to Charles Adams, New Mexico, April 4, 1929

A seminal work in Adam's career, and a landmark photography book, “Taos Pueblo” is considered by many to be the greatest pictorial representation of the American West. With the publication of “Taos Pueblo,” Adams launched his career as arguably the greatest landscape photographer of our time.

"I think New Mexico was the greatest experience I ever had from the outside world. It certainly changed me forever."

 D.H. Lawrence

Lawrence bought a ranch in Taos that can be visited - and which was a focal point for literati in the 20's.  Even Georgia O'Keeffe visited and lived there for a time.   Lawrence in fact wrote and was inspired to write several of his novels in Taos.
