Photographer's Note

In 1929, the famous painter Georgia O'Keefe was looking for new inspiration, growing tired of her home-base at Lake George, New York. She went by train to Santa Fe, New Mexico then started exploring, which included many horse pack trips into the mountains and deserts, and even visited D.H. Lawrence who lived nearby. Between 1929 and 1949 O'Keefe spent more time painting and exploring in New Mexico than anywhere else. She bought a house at Ghost Ranch, and in 1949 moved permanently there. Today her home is a designated National Historical Landmark, and the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe has many of her paintings and photographs of her, etc.
