New work: Rocky Boy Powwow

Rocky Boy Powwow

While in the US this summer, I spent some time photographing the Rocky Boy Powwow. The work fits in with my ongoing “Not Cloudy All Day” project about contemporary life in Montana. It’s an interesting area: Montana’s smallest indian reservation, one of the youngest communities in the country by median age, and isolated at more than a couple hours from a medium sized city. The area has it’s problems, just as any reservation does, but there are little breaths of hope here and there. There’s a beautiful college on the reservation, infrastructure continues to develop, jobs are appearing, and the powwow seems to get bigger every year.
