Last year we shared several posts about a New York-based photographer who was working with the Shinnecock Nation.
He was taking beautiful pictures of their community and wanted to visit some others around the nation.
Since then Bryan Downey did indeed visit with several Cherokee and Pawnee members in Oklahoma and has been working with people from the Ojibwe community to take photos of their members.
Bryan will be traveling to the Dakotas in the late fall and is hoping to work on more portraits for tribes in that area. Are you interested in being photographed? Bryan does not charge to take the photos, and all photos will be released to the tribe and subjects for their own use. He is willing to travel to your community at any time, so don't be shy! All are welcome to be photographed. He also serves as a mentor to aspiring young photographers so you might even be able to set up a mini workshop for tribal members!
If anyone out there would like to reach out to Bryan and be photographed, please contact him via email at [email protected] or phone at 516-768-5974.
We'd love to see your face on PowWows.com!
