We are very sorry to learn of the passing of former CENTER Board Member Philip Metcalf. He and his wife Patricia Galagan, alumna of Review Santa Fe, have recently published a new book, Fire Ghosts, produced by former board chair Joanna Hurley of HurleyMedia and published by George F. Thompson Publishing.
“Photographers Philip Metcalf and Patricia Galagan saw his futuristic trend play out in the aftermath of a massive wildfire in New Mexico in 2011. While photographing the 156,000-acre burn scar of the Las Conchas Fire over seven years, they learned from forest ecologists that this forest’s imperfect recovery is emblematic of what lies ahead for forests not just in the American Southwest, but in every arid zone in the world.”
Book Signing is on December 7 at photo-eye Bookstore from 3-5pm. If you can’t make it to town you can order directly from photo-eye.
