Back on August 25, we were brought on by the Deb Haaland to provide photography for a busy day of campaign events in Albuquerque, NM. This included: The Bernalillo County Federation of Democratic Women’s Annual Fashion Show, the Bernalillo County Democratic Ward Chairs Picnic, the local Carpenter’s Union Back-to-School Supply Drive, and a campaign meet-and-greet hosted in Corrales, NM.
Here are a few of the shots we provided to her campaign team.

A little over a week ago, Poli Pix headed to Albuquerque to offer some quality images to the Deb Haaland for Congress campaign.
We are excited by her candidacy because when she’s elected by the people of New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District, she’ll be the first Native American woman ever sent to the U.S. House.
Our nation’s Congress has never had a voice like hers, and we were honored to be able to help define that voice through the following photos:
Poli Pix was so thrilled to run into so many of our friends in Albuquerque as part of our work documenting March For Our Lives’ Road to Change events throughout the Southwestern U.S. True to form, Albuquerque welcomed the student gun safety activists with a combination of lively music, art installation calling for an end to gun violence, and dancing – all at Albuquerque’s historic Roosevelt Park.
Here’s a sample of the full gallery we provided to the organization (23/109 images):
Tuesday’s elections in New Mexico brought a well-earned primary win for Deb Haaland, an organizer and former Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair running for the U.S. House in NM-01. When she wins in November, she’ll be the first Native American woman sent to Congress in our nation’s history.
Haaland joined other Democrats including Michelle Lujan Grisham – the outgoing CD-1 U.S. Rep and Democratic Party’s gubernatorial nominee – at the traditional DPNM Unity Breakfast on Wednesday morning, held at Barelas Coffee House in southeast Albuquerque.
This Saturday, Poli Pix joined roughly 200 activists gathered in Santa Teresa, NM to protest the continued construction of the 2000+ mile border wall along the southern U.S. border.
With temperatures topping out at 100 degrees, demonstrators called attention to the ecological consequences of the structure across the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts, expressing collective dismay at the Trump administration’s spending on the structure.
New Mexico statewide Democratic primary candidates Billy Garrett, Garrett VeneKlasen, and Bill McCamley were in attendance.

Last night Poli Pix attended a community meet-and-greet welcoming Democratic gubernatorial candidate and media executive Jeff Apodaca to Santa Rosa, NM.
Billy Garrett, Dona Ana County Commissioner and Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, meets supporters at a Mesilla, NM fundraiser hosted by former NM State Representative J. Paul Taylor. The event was hosted at Rep. Taylor’s home, which is one of the oldest residential structures in Old Mesilla. Both the house and collection of art will be delivered to the State of New Mexico by Mr. Taylor’s estate.
