I have spent the last two years of my life capturing my friends in the historic wet plate collodion process of silver on glass. The original plates are archived and curated by the Historical Society of North Dakota at the Heritage Center. This will be the first time all 120 of the plates will be on display. This is only the beginning, my longterm goal is to capture 1000 Native Americans in my beloved process, a 20 year commitment I will cherish.
Please join us to celebrate a night of heritage and culture. Darren Thompson will be playing live flute music for the visitors.
Everyone is welcomed to join us. I want everyone to know that regalias and traditional dress is very much welcomed and appreciated the night of the opening. Friday November 3rd, 2017 from 5-7pm.
Thank you Gilbert Kills Plenty Enemy III and Rusty Gillette for making the official posters.
