Whether it is photographing the 19th-century trade route along the Santa Fe Trail between New Mexico and Missouri, penguins and glaciers in Antarctica, volcanic activity in Iceland, or wildlife in the jungles of India, photographer Joan Myers takes to her subjects with an adventurous zeal. Beneath Our Feet: Photographs by Joan Myers, a survey of her work, opens Friday, March 7, at the New Mexico Museum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave.).
“Beneath Our Feet talks about both the land we walk on and our feet, so it implies a human presence. These are things I’ve been interested in for a long time,” Myers told Pasatiempo. “You could sort of consider it a miniretrospective. It has selections from several bodies of work but certainly not all of them. It has work from very early in Los Angeles. It has work from the Santa Fe Trail series, which is a body of work the museum owns quite a few prints from. It has a little bit from the Antarctic work and images from more recent work, which is volcanic. I’m calling that Fire and Ice at this point.”
