    Dates: 02 Oct – 29 Nov, 2015
    Sandstone Monument with Bouquet, Trujillo, New Mexico by Jim Jordan
    Sandstone Monument with Bouquet, Trujillo, New Mexico

    Photographer and life-long resident of the Texas Panhandle Jim Jordan will showcase a selection of his photographs taken in cemeteries throughout Northern New Mexico. Unlike modern perpetual care cemeteries, camposantos graves are often highly individualized with hand-made monuments using humble materials such as cement, wood, scrap metal, AstroTurf and lovingly decorated with artificial flowers. In Jordan's words, "I find camposantos to be very special places of devotion and remembrance.  As historian Bill Green says about cemeteries, “Every plot has a story.”"
