Artist's description:

I wanted to try something different, not necessarily street photography, but investigate a culture, portraits that talk about a peoples' culture. This series of photographs are of the Wampanoag people. They were taken at the 96th annual Pow Wow in Massachusetts, United States. Their cultural pride and emotion are evidenced in each photograph.

In the early part of the 17th century they lived in what is now known as Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The name means “easterners” and at one point, their population was 12,000. They spoke a language sometimes called Massachusett or Natick. Although this language has been extinct since the 1800’s, there has been a movement recently to revive it based on existing texts.

Each photograph is printed on medium weight, archival, matte paper and is shipped to you in a tube. I hope you enjoy this series and look forward to your comments.

Best,
Mitchell
