Art Director / Associate Publisher
Edie Dillman is the visual voice of New Mexico Magazine, stamping a redesign in our January issue this year and setting a high standard for photography and design in each issue. She recently stepped up and expanded her role to include leading the magazine’s advertising sales team. Edie joined the staff in 2013 after running her own design and photo-editing studio for clients such as Outside magazine. Using that expertise, along with significant ad sales experience, she’s developing deeper partnerships with the travel, tourism, and hospitality communities. In her free time, Dillman encourages her two children’s forays into Santa Fe’s youth arts scene, throws memorable dance parties at venues like Meow Wolf, and hosts concerts in her Railyard-area home.
Art for the Sake of Park
Santa Fe resident David Halpern first exhibited his photographs 65 years ago. An author, teacher, and photographer, he’s had images included in several public and private collections. For years, he hiked and climbed mountains and canyons carrying large-format cameras and a heavy tripod, but in the 1990s he embraced the digital age. He has served as an artist-in-residence 12 times at national parks, but don’t ask for his favorite one. “That’s like asking me to name my favorite child,” he says. Learn more at davidhalpern.com.
In His Own Skin
"Collaboration fuels artist Frank Buffalo Hyde’s work,” says Santa Fe–based photographer Kate Russell. “That’s also a deep well of energy and inspiration for me.” Russell looks for people and subjects who will share her excitement of discovering the possibilities within and beyond the photo. She’s a frequent contributor to New Mexico Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine. See more of her work at katerussellphotography.com.
