By: James Talley, Cavalliere Ketchum

This unusual collaboration between a songwriter and a photographer comprises a book of Cavalliere Ketchum's photographs of the people of Manzano, New Mexico, including James Talley's writings, and a CD of Talley's song cycle The Road to Torreón. When the two men met in 1967 they discovered that Ketchum's Manzano photographs and Talley's songs, about people he met in his job as a welfare worker, were made in the same spirit. Having found this unexpected kinship, Talley went on to write songs and poems around some of the people Ketchum had photographed. For more than twenty years the photos and songs went unpublished although the work was legendary in New Mexico and among Talley's fans.
