Craig Varjabedian


Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait




Craig Varjabedian's photographs, made over the nearly three decades that he has lived and worked in New Mexico, range over all the image-making forms--landscape, portrait, and still life--to offer a remarkably complete, varied and original portrait of New Mexico. Fittingly, the photographs celebrate the hundred years of New Mexico’s statehood begun in 1912. Our show coincides with the debut of his newest book Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait, published by the University of New Mexico Press.

Varjabedian's work has been collected by a number of museums, and he has been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the McCune Charitable Foundation. A few years ago the prestigious Meadows Museum in Dallas presented a one-person show of his photography. Born in Canada in 1957, he lives in Santa Fe.

“I feel that land and people form relationships, and when I take a photograph, I’m forming a relationship, both with the subject of my picture (be it tree, cloud, building, or person) and the environment around the subject,” explains Varjabedian. “Nowadays, when I photograph I feel I’m creating an homage to the West, its land, and its people. The light and sky are spectacular, but the people who live here also affirm the strength, endurance, and magic of this place.”




Prices: Craig Varjabedian's photographs are superbly printed in editions of 200, with prices increasing for every 25 prints sold. Prints may be either silver gelatin or archival digital; I cannot tell the difference when looking at them. The beginning tier for 8 x 10 and 11 x 14 inch prints is $895.00. 16 x 20 prints are $1,475.00, and 20 x 24 prints are $1,975.00. Current pricing (subject to change) will be noted when a thumbnail image is clicked on for enlargement.
