Obscura Gallery is thrilled to welcome Debbie Fleming Caffery back to Santa Fe for a summer solo exhibition, Portraits of Birds, a beloved project Debbie has undertaken most of her career. At a young age growing up on the Bayou Teche in Louisiana, Debbie was inspired by her grandfather, who raised doves, pigeons, and chickens and took her on day trips to visit wild birds. Throughout Debbie’s career, she continued her passion for these creatures, photographing birds in many varied settings: living wild in Louisiana, freed from animal markets in Mexico, and most recently rehabilitated as Avian Ambassadors in New Mexico. Debbie brings the same sensitivity into this stunning collection of black and white gelatin silver portraits of birds as she is known for when photographing people of various cultures.
The artist reception takes place on Friday, July 7 from 5-7pm
Exhibition is on view June 9 through July 29, 2023
