For the past sixty-two years extraordinary Northern New Mexican artists have gathered on the Santa Fe Plaza to celebrate their traditional Hispanic culture and exquisite artistry. Twenty-Seven years ago the Contemporary Hispanic Market was created. These two  vibrant markets are a feast for the senses. I strolled for hours, trying to capture the spirit and energy with my camera.
