Horse shelter holds fundraiser

-A A +A

Fine art photographer Craig Varjabedian and the University of New Mexico Press announce an event to benefit The Horse Shelter in Santa Fe, a sanctuary devoted to caring for New Mexico’s abused, abandoned and neglected horses.
Varjabedian’s new book “Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait” will officially be available Oct. 1. Before worldwide release of the book, Varjabedian and the University of New Mexico Press are offering four autographed pre-release copies of the book to horse lovers who provide a donation of $250 or more to the Horse Shelter in Santa Fe.
“Horses are simply amazing and beautiful animals. Some people say they don’t feel affection for their owners, but I disagree. I see love, respect, familiarity, trust — all those emotions mutually between a horse and a man,” Varjabedian wrote in his book “Four and Twenty Photographs: Stories from Behind the Lens.”
The images range over all the image-making forms — from landscape, portrait and still life — to offer a complete, varied and original portrait of the Land of Enchantment.
The book contains 90 photographs in a hardcover coffee table book and includes three essays by New Mexico writers. Donations will help support these horses in need.
To make a donation and receive your autographed copy of “Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait,” call 983-2934.
