DescriptionAs early as 1851, photographers journeyed along the arduous Santa Fe Trail on horseback, and in covered wagons, on a quest to capture the magnificent vistas on film.
In the ever-changing light of New Mexico's landscape, they photographed the faces of the Pueblo people, and helped to document their ancient, unimaginable world. They became witness to millennia of history.

About the Artist
Ana Pacheco's family settled in Santa Fe during the 17th century. While working as the historian in her hometown, Pacheco had the opportunity to study the cultural intersectionality that defines Santa Fe. Captivated by the enduring legacy of New Mexico's indigenous population, Pacheco continues to share their stories with people throughout the world. Photographs of the Pueblos dating back to 1866, provided courtesy of the Museum of New Mexico, offer a window into an ancient past that remains vibrant today.
