      Member Event

      Photographers and authors, Siegfried Halus and Greg Mac Gregor will speak about their book, In Search of Dominguez & Escalante which looks at the 1776 expedition of Francisco Atanasio Dominguez and Silvestre Velez de Escalante. The 1776 expedition, which included cartographer Don Bernardo Miera y Pacheco, circumnavigated 1800 miles of unchartered territory never before seen by Europeans, an arduous five month trip documented in Escalantes journal. More than two hundred years later Greg Mac Gregor and Siegfried Halus have created a remarkable visual record of the expedition. Using Escalantes journal as their guide, the photographers followed the expeditionary route, circling through New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona, and documenting the frontier as first witnessed by the Spanish explorers on horseback. Greg Mac Gregor and Siegfried Halus are renowned photographers and educators whose works have been exhibited internationally. Mac Gregor is professor emeritus of photography at California State University. He is the author of Overland: The California Emigrant Trail of 1841-1870 (University of New Mexico Press). Halus is former director of the art department of Santa Fe Community College and the author (with Marie Romero Cash) of Living Shrines: Home Alters of New Mexico (Museum of New Mexico Press). They both live in Santa Fe.
