Synopsis : Combining reportage with portraiture, this work includes sections on the Big Mountain Navajo and the ceremonial life of the Rio Grande pueblos. Each section is prefaced with a commentary by the photographer, providing an insight into the diversity and traditions of Native American life.
Critique: It is a widely held--but false--notion that the Hopi do not want to be photographed because they feel the camera will steal their spirit. The real reason, says John Running, is that "they don't want photographs taken that make them feel like curiosities." Running, in the words of a Navajo friend, "takes pictures of the truth," which not only describes his remarkably candid photographs, but also explains how he got them. Here in color and black and white are images of Native Americans of many tribes, deliberately and proudly posing for portraits in their homes and Running's makeshift studios, doing ceremonial dances, and above all, being themselves.
