For the first time in Oblique Views: Archaeology, Photography and Time, large prints of photographer Adriel Heisey’s will be on display, shoulder to shoulder with the same shots taken in 1929.
Back then, the vistas were captured on celluloid by aviation legend Charles Lindbergh and his new wife, Anne. Heisey leaned out the door of a light plane, holding his camera with both hands and capturing the landscapes as they currently exist -some in stark contrast to the landscape’s past.
Oblique Views gives the audience a rare opportunity to see changes caused by man, time and the elements to some of the most iconic landmarks in the southwest, including Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelley and Threatening Rock -which possesses the most dramatic of natural changes.
Santa Feans can also see how their city has grown -and at the same time, held on to the small village personality that has made it idiosyncratic, iconic and famous.
Oblique Views runs now through May of 2017. For more information, visit www.indianartsandculture.org.
