Holloman Air Force Base in Otero County received over $21 million to upgrade facilities including some runways as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This was probably one theĀ  more difficult shoots I did for NMORR, as there wasn’t too much I was allowed to see, and I couldn’t go anywhere without my escort. Needless to say, they didn’t show me where they keep the UFO’s.

In 2010, along with fellow photographers Michael J. Gallegos, Mark Holm and Jake Schoellkopf, I was commissioned by the New Mexico Office of Recovery and Reinvestment to document how some of the stimulus dollars were spent around New Mexico. This is the fourth post is a series of six on the work I did for NMORR.
