A note about the photographs…

All color photographs for sale are giclee photographs. Giclee, French for “a spray of inks”, is a fine art printing process, now found in museums and collections the world over. Giclees are printed one at a time with water based dyes on 100% rag watercolor paper, making it the most archival process known for printing photographic works of art.

Giclee photographs will not fade for 150 years, provided they are not displayed in direct rays of sunlight. (No photograph, giclee or otherwise, should be allowed to hang in an environment where it will come in constant contact with direct rays of light.)

The black & white photographs are archivally processed and sepia toned.

Each photograph comes with extensive individualized interviews and descriptions, taken from The Awakening of Turtle Island: Portraits of Native America touring museum exhibition.

All photographs are signed by the artist. All come with acid free mats and an acid free museum mounting except where noted.
