Today is our photo curator Daniel Kosharek's last day at the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives. Congratulations to Daniel on his retirement. He will be missed.

Daniel curated some of New Mexico History Museum's most memorable exhibitions, including Lowriders, Hoppers, and Hot Rods: Car Culture of Northern New Mexico and Poetics of Light: Pinhole Photography. He is pictured below in a camera obscura during the Poetics of Light exhibition.
