Mayan Ruins Revisited: In the Footsteps of Teobert Maler
October 2, 2020 - October 31, 2020
Peyton Wright Gallery and Peyton Wright Publishing are pleased to announce an exhibition and book signing for William Frej’s new book Maya Ruins Revisited: In the Footsteps of Teobert Maler. There will be an opening reception and book signing on Friday, October 2 from 5-7 pm. There will be an artist’s talk and book signing on Saturday, October 3 from 1-3 pm. The gallery will observe protocols of the New Mexico Department of Health, and masks will be required for all patrons.
This stunning, substantial volume documents William Frej’s forty-five-year search for remote Maya sites primarily in Guatemala and Mexico, inspired in large part by his discovery of the work of German-Austrian explorer Teobert Maler, who photographed them in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many of Frej’s magnificent photographs are juxtaposed here with historic photographs taken by Maler, and reveal the changes in the landscape that have occurred in the intervening century.
