About this Piece

In 1973 the Pueblo, Colorado Regional Library District commissioned Myron Wood to document the people, land and architecture of Southeastern Colorado. His photographic survey lasted seven years and resulted in approximately 10,000 photographs, now housed at the public library in Pueblo, Colorado.

A selection of these photographs was exhibited in a one-man show in 1978-79 at The International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House, Rochester, New York, curated by Beaumont Newhall, renown photo historian and second director of the George Eastman Museum. This exhibition then traveled to the Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, Texas in 1979.

About the Artist

Born in Wilson, Oklahoma, Myron Wood abandoned a career as a classical pianist in 1946, attended The Progressive School of Photography in New Haven, CT for two years and then moved to Colorado Springs, CO. He spent the remaining 53 years of his life in Colorado as an independent photographer.

Known for his lyrical interpretations of the cultures and landscapes of the Southwest, diverse geographic subjects and Weston-inspired straight photography recur throughout the history of his work.


ARTIST STATEMENT

“Writers taught me how to see. Painters and photographers didn’t teach me how to see. Writers taught me how to observe. Bach taught me how to think through his music. Every time you think you know what he’s going to do next, he does something brilliant and unbelievable. It’s a constant working on a theme, which he expands and uses. Pure genius. I learned about design from painters, musicians and writers.

So, I became a photographer after an early life as a musician and found to my surprise that I hadn’t wasted a minute. The same words are used – tone, line, ensemble, balance – and all the things I thought about and used in music were, across the board, related to photography. I also discovered becoming well equipped in a number of art forms is very important. It allows you to more easily move in your own art form.” Myron Wood, 1993

from an interview with Journeys Magazine, Colorado Springs, CO, Fall 1993
