 Copper Canyon Chihuahua, Mexico with One Heart World Wide 2010

Arizona US/Mexico borderland photographer,  Raechel Running creates images that are more than just photographs. Freelancing for over 25 years her work has been published internationally for editorial, corporate, music and travel stories and exhibited as fine art. 

Running’s strength is  in her ability to conceptualize ideas; whether in the studio or on location she combines portraiture and reportage with illustrative techniques to create a new kind of classic that is timeless and something different.  The pursuit of photography as a way of life has inspired Raechel to travel the road less traveled. 
Her work is infused with the history of the  Americas and the iconic West. 

RAEchel’s work reflects concern for life cycles, people, nature, and the miracles expressed in everyday life. These visual musings celebrate life and death and the spiritual thread that  connects us to our human experience and the landscape that exist beyond the current borderlands.  Running’s documentary and fine art photo based explorations are contemplative and symbolic reflections of her interests in social and  environmental concerns. She aspires to show how our backyards are connected in expressions of visual poetry.
