I was unable to get an update from Patricia Leigh last year (2015 update) and the reason, unfortunately ..is that just about the time we published ..Patricia Leigh passed away.
Much of her
photographys' subject matter was right around our mesa, Vista de Pedernal!
After having communicated many..many times with Patricia
, I did have a foreboding, as she
spoke often about her
battle and the desire to leave some lasting work, if God forbid, it came back...
Some years back, as I remember, Patricia
had been battling cancer and felt that she
had beaten it; and hence in her
mind, a new lease on life!
re-began ..her passion, photography..sub category equine.. sub folder mustangs and out on the range.
As a mainstay and one of the originators of the Santa Fe Rail Yard Art Market and it's President, she
stayed busy with her
passion certainly up and until Fall 2014!
equine photography is the best I've seen in a state where we see lots of mustang, wild horse based subject photography.
shows every week down by the Railway section of Santa Fe..only 45 minutes drive from our mesa.
has the ability to capture/create special effects right thru the viewfinder and for instance with subject matter like the Monero Mustangs ..also important!
Mustangs and Wild Horses capture the imagination of a great many ..their freedom and the thunderous sound of galloping hoofs.
To me the beautiful photographs in Patricia Leigh's
Equine Collection represents everything life in the southwest means: beauty, freedom, love, friendship, courage, strength, hardship, perseverance.... Gabriela
