Photographs by Craig Varjabedian
Varjabedian’s new hardcover book The Light of Days Gone By was 45 years in the making. It commemorates with stunning imagery the journey of a photographer and the beautiful light he witnessed and captured along the way.
Described by Varjabedian as a celebration of the many amazing adventures with a camera that grace or kismet or perhaps good luck have brought his way. The images were culled from photographs shot over decades from across the American West and faraway places. The book invites us behind the lens into this photographer’s world, where we witness a captivating collage of stories through his evocative photographs.
Craig Varjabedian’s memory of the day that inspired his passion for photography is as clear as the glacial waters of Lake Louise in his native Canada. Craig was seven years old and in awe of the majestic landscape around him. His mother encouraged him to peer into the viewfinder of the family’s Kodak camera for the first time and release the shutter. In that instant, he discovered the wonder of capturing a moment in time.
Later lured by the enigmatic vistas and people of the American West, Craig made Santa Fe, New Mexico, his home and found the artistic voice that is the hallmark of his fine art photography.
Craig’s passion is creating art that explores and expresses the truth of his experiences in intimate portraits and luminous landscapes. His luminous photographs reflect his heart-felt connection to authenticity and beauty; the photographer uses the depths of black & white and the nuances of color to move viewers beyond the realm of simple print on paper.
Varjabedian has distinguished himself through fourteen award-winning books, receiving several grants, including two from the National Endowment for the Arts, and an Emmy Award television documentary. A selection of the books published on Craig’s photographic work include: En Divina Luz: The Penitente Moradas of New Mexico, Four & Twenty Photographs: Stories from Behind the Lens…see all books HERE.
