Donald Woodman – Cranes was inspired by the sandhill cranes that fly over his home in the Rio Grande River Valley on their way to Bernardo, NM, each November and March. His Cranes highlights the ever-intensifying trials and tribulations cranes face as they migrate each year. Donald Woodman is a photographer from Haverhill, Massachusetts, whose work deals with themes of identity, femininity, and masculinity. His works have been featured in museums and galleries such as the New Mexico History Museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Albuquerque Art and History Museum, and the Contemporary Art Museum in Kumamoto, Japan. Woodman is married to the artist Judy Chicago, and together, they live and create art in Belen, New Mexico. This piece is part of a show at Turner Carroll Gallery co-curated by Judy Chicago.
