The land I come from is often portrayed as an ugly place. The infographic explaining Pine Ridge reservation is the poorest county in America, superimposed over some trash billowing around a passed out drunk in White Clay is fairly typical. But I think that story is a half-truth at best, even though its the only story the media seems to want to tell. There is a lot of beauty in this land alongside all the suffering. I want to document that other untold story. I’ll do this by taking my camera as I go about my life, which involves travelling around the various reservation districts, and photographing what I think is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth. I’ll add to this post as the project progresses.
