About the Authors

Philip Metcalf is a landscape photographer who creates black-and-white infrared images. His passion is to interpret nature, both pristine and altered by man, especially in the American Southwest. Increasingly, environmental concerns influence his work. In 2015, he was an artist-in-residence at Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico with his wife, Patricia Galagan. His work has been shown at the New Mexico Museum of Art and the San Diego Art Institute and is included in the photo archives of the New Mexico History Museum.

Patricia Galagan is a fine-art photographer based in Santa Fe whose work often concerns the aftermath of upheaval in the landscape. Her work was part of the 2015 Fire Season show at the New Mexico Museum of Art, which has also been shown at Fototeca de Cuba in Havana and at Fotografika Gallaery near Geneva, Switzerland. She was awarded a solo show at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, by Photollucida in 2014. With her husband, Philip Metcalf, she was an artist-in-residence at Bandelier National Monument in 2015.
