Piece description from the artist
Preceding my shoot, throughout the course of the day, I had noticed a zing in the light. Here in New Mexico, where the light is the primary player in any sight seen, there are days when the sun itself seems to be singing out. Like the ring of fine crystal being toasted on a rare occasion, such light must be acknowledged and remarked upon. The biting cold was a minor player on a shoot that allowed the opportunity for this image. It is one of my most widely published and successful sellers ever.
Kevin Lange is a photographer living in central New Mexico. Born and bred a child of the "Four Corners":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Corners_Monument landscape, he explores the roots of "Western Expansionism":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manifest_destiny, and its role in the ever-evolving state of our existence.
Kevin’s work aims to bring to light the inimitable, and often contradictory beauty that exemplifies the landscapes, destinations, and unique brand of individuals that make up the American West.
