Bruce Gomez is a photographer from Taos, New Mexico. Born in Santa Fe and raised at Taos Pueblo, he (Morning Walking) is the son of the late Doris Damon Gomez who was Diné (Todich’ii’nii- Bitter Water Clan) and the late Tommy Gomez who was from Taos Pueblo. Greatly influenced by his father who was a sign maker/artist, he sees photography as an extension of his first love of painting as a child.
Artists and writers have always been drawn to the Southwest for its sheer wonder and awe. There is a Diné word, “hozho,” which can translate to beauty, balance, harmony. He is a believer in nurturing and living in this way. It is the artist’s hope that his images will help the viewer to appreciate and take time to breathe, see and feel the vast beauty within and around us.
A longtime high school teacher, he created a Health course focused on the Concept of Hozho, and a Native American Studies Program at Taos High School. A former athlete, he trained with some the nation’s finest runners including Olympic marathon champion Frank Shorter while at the University of Colorado in Boulder. His high school track teams have won numerous individual and state team championships. He continues to coach and promote youth running through his company, Taos Marathon Racing LLC.
Self-taught in photography, he relies on intuition and feel. Having grown up in a traditional community, he only photographs what is allowed on Pueblo land.
He resides in Taos with his wife, Anne-Marie and 17-year-old daughter, Marielle.
