The couple has collaborated on two books, "Ghost Ranch: Land of Light" (Balcony Press, 1997), and "Images in the Heavens, Patterns on the Earth: The I Ching" (Museum of New Mexico Press, 2005), which won the American Association of Museums award for design in 2005. Russek was a founding member of the New Mexico Council on Photography, and she has served on the boards of the Marion Center for Photographic Arts and the Association of International Photography Art Dealers. Her work is part of the permanent collections of several museums, including the New Mexico Museum (Santa Fe), the Bibliotecque Nationale (Paris), and the High Museum of Art (Atlanta).
