photographer: Craig Varjabedian

Black Tree and Orphan Mesa, Ghost Ranch, NM 2005

(As stated on his website) Craig Varjabedian's photographs of the American West and Southwest eloquently illuminate his connections with the region and its people. His finely detailed images shine with an authenticity that reveals the inseparable ties between identity, place, and the act of perceiving. For Varjabedian, the art of photography is a receptive process driven by a committed openness to what each subject offers to reveal, rather than the desire to manipulate form or catalog detail. He achieves this intensely personal vision by capturing and suspending on film those decisive moments in which the elements of a scene and the ineffable spirit of a moment come together in exceptional, often startling ways.

He was also featured on NPR today.
