Photographer Scott Baxter shares enthusiasm for AZ Historymaker Program

At a recent event at  Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West, noted photographers Scott Baxter and Werner Segarra shared their techniques of capturing images of ranchers and vaqueros of Arizona and Mexico. Baxter  commented on his work with the Historical League, thanking the group for preserving Arizona’s history with the Arizona Historymakers Program. Scott has photographed many of the Historymakers including the 2023 honorees: 

Frank M. Barrios, Angel Delgadillo, Dolan Ellis, Honorable Terry Goddard, Denise D. Resnik, Jeffrey M. Trent Ph.D., Daniel D. Von Hoff M.D., Mrs. Elizabeth J. White. The Historymakers Celebration “Turquoise & Treasures” will be held October 14, 2023 at Arizona Heritage Center at Papago Park. 

Included in The Gather exhibit ending August 27 at Western Spirit are the best of several fine art photography projects by Scott T. Baxter over the past 22 years. The exhibition is just in time for the 10th anniversary of the Arizona state centennial — at which time Baxter was recognized as an Arizona Culturekeeper for his efforts to photographically preserve Arizona’s heritage.
