Stacia Spragg-Braude is a photographer and writer along the Rio Grande in Corrales, New Mexico, where she lives with her family and animals and lots of unscanned film. For many years, Stacia worked for the Albuquerque Tribune, where she took much delight in exploring the state with a camera and shamelessly avoiding having to shoot all but one football game during 8 or 9 years of employment. These days she spends her time on projects exploring our connection to the land, plunking along acequias with a cold beer and a couple of friends, drawing parallels between digging potatoes and rediscovering dreams, lost happily in the circles of life.
