Michael P. Smith Fund For Documentary Photography 2012 Finalist Jeremiah Ariaz Tucumari, New Mexico

Project Summary: Tucumcari, New Mexico is disappearing. Begun at the time of the town?s centennial and during the national economic downturn, my project creates a portrait of this distinctly American place caught between a vanishing past and an uncertain future.

Congratulations to all of the Finalists in the 2012 Michael P. Smith Fund For Documentary Photography
