Faces in the Dance

dancer at Taos Pueblo pow-wow

Too many photographers! Shooting between heads, sigh.

This is from the 7:30 p.m. Grand Entry at the 2013 Taos Pueblo Pow-wow. My wife says I don’t like to take pictures of people, but that’s not true: it’s just that I’m shy, and the photos have to be candid ones. This means a lot of sneaky pictures with the telephoto lens. Unfortunately, there were scads of guys with telephoto lenses sneaking around. Every year it seems there are more. I tried to act like, “Hey, I’m different!” But next year I’ll probably leave my camera at home.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    No, don’t do that. I like the photos and the way you shoot people reminds me of assignments I had when I worked 31 years as a photojournalist.

      Wasn’t fishing for compliments, but that will do. (Thank you!) And realistically, I’m having too much fun not to take the camera, so…
