Gene Kloss, Adobe Walls

A figure is viewed from the back walking down the middle of Placitas Road near the Taos Plaza, surrounded by adobe dwellings and walls. Large cottonwoods in deep shadow line the road and distant, very light mountains are in the background. A traditional New Mexican scene, Kloss captures a typical village experience effectively using the etching technique to create a warm, inviting image.
