Photographer's Note

I will take a break from my pow wow theme periodically. I was in the process of completing my New York City theme, and then the city of Denver hired me to photograph the March Denver Pow Wow and I posted my new pow wow photos as I was editing. These breaks will add some variety and will enable me to complete my NYC theme at the same time.

You wonder what does New York City have in common with contemporary Native American culture. It has quite a bit in common, actually. Many Native Americans live in the Big Apple. Many of the Indian Reservations are tough places to live economically and Indians move to cities to earn a living and from I have heard, many adapt quite well to city life. Many non-Indians who work in the New York City area are from sparsely populated areas and from farms and ranches. Rural life can be tough, and this is where many young people make their mark. New York City is a fascinating place anyway and as we all know a very expensive place to live.

My friend and fellow TE member, Jorge Cadamartori (Jorge CK) graciously drove my wife and me to this spot in Brooklyn and showed me this fantastic vantage point where the Empire State Building in the distance is framed by the Manhattan Bridge. Thanks again Jorge! He has a great B&W shot of this scene. Please check it out.
