@Regrann from @cpwwpc – Hi! I'm @jeremynative, and I've been invited to take over the @CPWWCP's Instagram for the next five days in preparation for my Salon Presentation during the Race, Love and Labor exhibition at Stony Brook University on September 20th, 12pm!I spent the month of August at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, working on several new and continuing projects relating to indigenous culture, identity, and history – specifically our origin stories and connection to landscape.This image is based on a 1981 retelling of the Legend of Moshop in New England.
