Photographic depictions of Turtle Island (known to many as North America) have historically been controlled by non-native image-makers. From Edward Curtis to Jimmy Nelson, most of the past century’s documentation has routinely misrepresented, or exotically depicted the Indigenous people we see.
How We See Ourselves is a group exhibition with some of the thirty members of Natives Photograph, showing a deeper and more nuanced depiction of Indigenous life. This is an inside look at the communities, families, homes, and landscapes of this continent, created by artists using their cameras to reclaim their narrative.
Indigenous Photograph is a space to elevate the work of Indigenous visual journalists and bring balance to the way we tell stories about Indigenous people and spaces. Their mission is to support the media industry in hiring more Indigenous photographers to tell the stories of their communities, and to reflect on how we tell these stories.
Indigenous Photograph’s global database is available to photo editors, creative directors, and those who routinely hire photographers. The electronic database of their members includes detailed information regarding geographical areas of expertise, languages spoken, and contact information.
