native narrative 1.28.11

January 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

Usually not a big fan of images depicting and romanticing the native culture.

I am tired of running across ample amounts of images in which there is a close to naked white girl wearing a cheesy head dress and face paint reminiscent of a native warrior. However, when i came across this shot i fell in love. The ghostly and distorted image overlaying the crouching girl was a very subtle native narrative. It combined the spirituality and soul of the culture while subtly paying homage to those long lost moments of solidarity.
