Seems like there’s a city list for just about everything, and Santa Fe has been on quite a few of them, like TIME magazine’s list of the world’s greatest places of 2021. We just got word that Santa Fe landed at number five on a list of most photographed skylines. This list was compiled by SINGULART, an online contemporary art gallery, which says in their release, “Using Linkfluence, we pulled data on engagement actions (likes, comments, shares, retweets, and favorites) on posts across Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest over 2021 so far, that have used hashtags such as #skyline, #skylinephotography, and #usaskylines.”

Listing reasons Santa Fe made it in the top five, SINGULART’s release stated, “Rounding off the top five with 9,460 engagement interactions, is New Mexico’s capital. Buildings in the skyline include the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, La Fonda on the Plaza, and Loretto Chapel — and while they may not be as tall as the buildings in other city’s skylines, they’re still just as beautiful.”

So, which city’s skylines made it on the list with Santa Fe? SINGULART says, “Collating engagement actions across hashtags such as #skyline, #skylinephotography, and #usaskylines, the top 12 cities are as follows,”

Commenting on the report, Marion Sailhen, head curator at SINGULART, says: “Skylines have been a source of inspiration for artists for many, many years now especially those that enjoy capturing the beauty of landscapes. It’s really interesting to see how they also influence photography, which too is considered a form of art, expression, and escapism for many creatives.”
