SANTA FE (KRQE) – “Breaking Bad” fans this weekend will have a chance to see AMC’s hit series like never before. They can experience “Breaking Bad” without sound and without the moving pictures.

The official still photographer of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” will give a presentation at the Albuquerque Museum on Sunday showcasing her work.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, photographer Ursula Coyote could say millions of good words about “Breaking Bad.”

From her studios in Santa Fe, she recalled a truck explosion.

“The whole earth shook,” she said. “It was like the atom bomb,” Coyote explained.

Coyote captured a compelling, fiery image with her still camera.

Coyote also recalled another scene where Skyler White submerges herself in the swimming pool.

“I got the shot, and it’s Walter White diving in with his glasses on, and her looking like a doll underwater,” Coyote said. “It was really surreal. It was like a mermaid gone wrong.”

Her role is to help market the show with still photography. “They say, ‘Wow! That’s a good picture, I’m going to watch that.’ So that’s what it’s for, trying to sell the show,” she said.

Coyote offered her take of how “Breaking Bad” redefined New Mexico. “It’s right up there with green chile and Los Alamos, the making of the atom bomb. No, I think maybe it’s surpassed that,” she said.

Coyote’s lecture will take place Sunday, December 13 at 1 p.m. at the Albuquerque Museum. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early. It’s included with the regular museum admission.
