New Mexico’s Organ Mountains are being considered for National Monument status and legendary landscape photographer David Muench has photographed there many times.

The Organ Mountains is an arid and dry desert region with sand dunes, abundant flora and fauna, and wildlife. The area is also rich in scenic beauty and pre-American, New Mexican, and American history. From the Apollo Space Mission, Billy the Kid’s Outlaw Rock, the Butterfield Stagecoach Trail, Geronimo’s Cave, some World War II aerial targets, and thousands of Native American Petroglyph’s and Pictographs are scattered around this mountain region.

David first photographed the region in the 1960’s and in this video, he tells the story behind his images, vividly recalling the fine details and wonderful experience shooting here over the last 40 years.

David Muench is legendary in the American landscape photography community. For 50 years he has explored the United States capturing the land and wilderness with his 4×5 view camera.
