While most people spent the past 18 months sequestered at home and behind closed doors to avoid contracting COVID-19, acclaimed photographer Don J. Usner ventured around the state, from the Four Corners region and the Navajo Nation to the state’s oil and gas fields in the Permian Basin and the southernmost border with Texas to bear witness with his camera. His photos were taken on assignment for Searchlight New Mexico, a young nonprofit investigative news organization that is home to a talented team of journalists who routinely generate stories of major import, triggering state and federal investigations and winning national awards.
