Connie's Photo Park – Madrid, New Mexico - Atlas Obscura

Connie's Photo Park

A little slice of Florida face-in-a-hole kitsch, unexpectedly located in a small New Mexico town. 


Connie Mayhew grew up in Key West, with tourist photo opportunities abound. So when she moved to New Mexico, she took her playful sensibilities with her.

The end result is Connie’s Photo Park, a joyful roadside attraction along the famous Turquoise Highway. The park features dozens of life-size face-in-a-hole signs, all painted by Connie herself using materials donated by friends. Check the signatures at the bottom to find out which year each one was made. Here, you can pose as an alien, an Easy Rider or a set of hippies or stage a photo in front of a old Western saloon / bathhouse.

You’re encouraged to dress up and bring your own photos, and then leave a suggested $2 donation at the door when done. The park is also rentable for memorable special occasions.
