15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Black Foot

The photo is a representation of where I come from. My great grandmother was a full blooded Indian. I wanted to capture a photo that showed the way of life for a female during my grandmothers time when it came down to face painting. The photo is a very strong piece and has a lot of heritage behind it.
