Taos Pueblo has stood for over ten centuries offering warmth and safety during the cold New Mexico winters. This photograph is signed in the lower left hand corner by award winning photographer, Debbie Lujan. As a resident of Taos, she brings a unique dimension to photography of the pueblo—she can go where the average visitor cannot, such as rooftops and restricted areas. As Debbie says, “If one cannot come to the pueblo, I can bring the pueblo to the world through my photographs.”
Taos Pueblo might be one of the most photographed places in the world, because of its distinctive architecture. This striking photograph captures a corner of a pueblo home on a frosty day in winter. The whiteness of the snow accents the strength of the vigas’ structural support on the interior of the building. The texture of the door and the contrast of colors of the wood feel welcoming. It is the straw embedded within the adobe that lends a feeling of permanence and safety to the dwelling. All of these elements indicate a presence of history and significance.
Debbie Lujan, owner of White Flower Photography, is a recognized photographer and has won numerous awards for her depictions of Taos and the surrounding countryside, including most recently at the Santa Fe Indian Market and The Heard Indian Show.
