Grateful to have found a home for my small framed print 'Glooscap Grants Three Wishes' from 2014. One of my favorite images taken inside of the Wikun Village at the Shinnecock Museum inside one of the wigwam (now fallen in/gone). The image is from a series titled 'Stories' – 2013 to present; Native American stories and legends have traditionally served the role of dealing with the unknown for Native people, specifically to illustrate the power of nature and create a reverence for it. As a Native American myself, recreating these stories with digital photography is my way of dealing with my own mysteries – where I come from and who my people are. The medium of photography, and my specific method of creating photorealistic, yet supernatural, images is to transform these stories from myths and legends on a page to depictions of actual experience in a photo. Using photography’s power to mirror reality, the stories subscribe to the modern standard of perceptual spiritual belief. The themes, aesthetics, morals, and stories of each image attempt to give Native American culture a contemporary agency to discuss the taboos of post-colonialism and universal global themes.
