Deborah Lujan’s Taos Pueblo gallery nestles within her family’s ancestral home.
The photographer’s images capture the pueblo’s coral light at sunset against a mountainscape sugared in snowfall. Or the way the turquoise in a woman’s traditional dress mirrors a doorway’s hue.
Lujan grew up straddling homes in both Albuquerque and at the pueblo. Her parents worked for the federal government here. They spent their weekends and vacations in Taos.
A violinist since she was 8 years old, Lujan accidentally discovered photography when a Sandia High School guidance counselor suggested she take a class in something other than music.
