Streets of Guanajuato: 2016 Image Collection

The State of Guanajuato is famous for its artistic legacy, a long history of silver mining and perhaps most importantly the birthplace of Mexico’s Independence.

Please take a moment to view this collection of recent images which I made while exploring the vibrant communities in and around San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato.

While the collection does include just a few iPhone images, such as the photograph of a family soaking at the thermal springs, the lions share of these images were made using the now classic Fuji x100s mirrorless camera.

For those of you who know this camera, you understand what a wonderfully versatile camera it is — in case you are not familiar with the Fuji line up, please check out the newest Fuji x100F. Sporting a fast (F2) fixed 23mm lens (35mm equivalent) this digital camera is a powerhouse!

I published a camera review last year on my experience as a Fuji x100s aficionado in the field — click on the link to give it a read.

Excited for the recent publication of my essay on New Mexico ranchers in American Cowboy, representing family traditions and the intrinsic relationship between life and land in the American West.

“We need to regard the landscape with respect,” Shockley says. “After all, it shaped the culture of the West. You can’t have one without the other. I want people to see that through my work, particularly if they’ve never been to the American West.”

Extremely grateful to my editors, Eva and Lauren, for thier enthusiasm and dedication to this feature, it was a great pleasure seeing these images come together on the pages of American Cowboy.

“In this series of photographs, Shockley trains his lens on the historic San Cristobal Ranch of Northern New Mexico, where multiple generations uphold cowboy traditions and manage the land. The inextricable relationship between life and land is a connection that inspires much of Shockley’s work.”
