: For the last quarter century, David Burckhalter has photographed the diverse peoples, cultures, and landscapes of Sonora, Mexico. These fifty-two black-and-white images are a representative cross-section of Burckhalter's massive body of work on Sonora's Indians, Hispanos, and Mestizos who, for hundreds of years, have lived in isolation in Sonora's high mountains, elevated valleys, desert plains, and coastal beaches. His subjectsmen, women, and children are Seris, Yaquis, Mayos, cowboys, fishermen, farmers, musicians, tavern keepers and patrons, merchants, weavers, and pilgrims. Essays by Gary Nabhan and Thomas E. Sheridan describe the unique, vivacious cultures of Sonora and explore the value of Burckhalter's photography to our understanding of the region.
