Sanra Fe Adobend awards hm 2020James Black was awarded an Honorable Mention by the 2020 ND Awards sponsored by ND Magazine in the Fine Arts category for a series of images titled “New Mexico Adobe.”   Adobe was used by Native Americans as a building material for centuries before the Spanish arrived.  The Spanish settlers adopted the tradition, and it continues today.  The images were taken between Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico while following the High Road to Taos.   The mission architecture is outstanding for B&W photography because of the textures, lines and curves.
