Wilderness by Debra Bloomfield won the 2015 Western Heritage Award for Outstanding Photography Book from the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
The award will be presented to the author and the University of New Mexico Press at the awards ceremony next month at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Okla.
According to the museum, the “Western Heritage Awards were established to honor and encourage the legacy of those whose works in literature, music, film and television reflect the significant stories of the American West.”
Published in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness Act, Wilderness reveals the stunning landscapes of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Bloomfield’s poetic large-scale color photographs are included in the collections of the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Phoenix Art Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
