Image and Imagination: Georgia O’Keeffe
John Loengard (au) (ph); Lothar Schirmer (pf)
In June 1966, “Life” magazine photographer John Loengard was assigned to travel to the desert of New Mexico. His brief: to shoot a photo-essay in and around Georgia O’Keeffe’s home at Ghost Ranch on the occasion of her upcoming 80th birthday. By then O’Keeffe had lived there in seclusion for two decades, having quit New York. Attempting to avoid disturbing O’Keeffe’s daily routine, Loengard captured the artist’s day-to-day life in elegant black-and-white photos. Published here for the first time in book form are 39 of Loengard’s finest images and juxtaposed with selected O’Keeffe paintings. The photos and paintings echo and inform each other, producing an artistic meditation on how the great painter’s long tenure in the desert ambiance affected her work.
