I was raised in "Indian Country" as a child and I am a Western Shoshone Indian from Northern Nevada. As an adult I turned to photography as a cathartic outlet from the pressures as a social worker on my reservation. My photography is also a legacy for my kids and the land that Native Americans revere. I've used photography to record the unadulterated beauty of contemporary indigenous landscapes, particularly on my Western Shoshone Reservation. My photography depicts a more basic way of life for those that still call it home and the land that still holds the untamed Native spirit.
