Longtime Santa Fe resident Gay Block’s photography is internationally recognized for its fearless exploration of personal identity issues—gender, class, religion, familial relationships, and sexual orientation. A survey of more than forty of her works from 1975 to 2012 in To Feel Less Alone: Gay Block, A Portrait, opens Friday, May 1, 2015 at the New Mexico Museum of Art. The exhibition runs through July 26, 2015.
