Since my childhood, I’ve been fascinated by the Native American Indian people and culture. Their spirituality speaks with all the elements of our earth, something which strongly resonates in my own beliefs and has inspired many adventures in nature. I was fortunate to have been a guest of the Mother Earth’s People Inter-Tribal Pow Wow just outside Victorville, CA. This project is in the very beginning stages and is my first experience of this type. American Indians are very private individuals and my greatest challenge was to transform myself from an outsider to someone who explores their spirituality through photographs. I would like to thank Moreena Rocha Chavez, the coordinator of the Pow Wow for her assistance in making these photographs possible.

David Savinski - I will say it’s very difficult to shoot with the Contax but the results are worth it. The process slows you way down (which isn’t a bad thing). Any camera system in any capable hands will produce excellent results. Of course what the image says will be vastly different depending on who’s holding the camera.June 9, 2012 – 6:36 pm
David Savinski - Thanks, Andrea! It’s interesting but I now think of myself as an art-historian.June 9, 2012 – 6:35 pm
