SACRED SITES OF THE LAKOTA
This project was photographed mostly in the Badlands and Black Hills of South Dakota, areas long considered sacred by the Lakota (Sioux) Indians and now under imminent threat of development by the mining of uranium as well as tourism. My interest is not to document these sites but to reveal a sense of place in hopes of sharing the importance of preserving this land for the spiritual enrichment of generations to come.
All images were made with a wooden 4×5 field camera on Polaroid Type 55 film.
