Charles Rencountre, "Medicine Horse", Kul Wicisa Oyate, for my series "Northern Plains Native Americans: A Modern Wet Plate Perspective". 8x10" black glass ambrotype in the historic process of pure silver on glass.
"Not Afraid to Look" is a large 8' tall cement sculpture that Charles created at Standing Rock during the Dakota Access Pipeline protests last year. Incidentally it is the only thing still standing at the Camp of the Sacred Stone. It was a true honor to have this important artist into my studio. He brought a maquette of the original work with him and it was important for us to feature it in his wet plate.
