About the collection
“Over the last several years, I’ve had the good fortune to meet and photograph members of many of the tribes and pueblos in New México, Colorado and Arizona. These portraits are meant to document, honour and celebrate Native American culture through the people I’ve photographed. I hope the images in this collection communicate the pride that each subject carries for their heritage and their community and honours their commitment to keep traditions from vanishing.”
