Living in my Grandmother’s Stories: Lenscratch
One of the favorite people I met in 2018 was Aline Smithson, of Lenscratch. We spoke at the conference PhotoNOLA, about searching for one’s home everywhere you go– and that’s certainly true for me in my artmaking.
Many thanks to Aline for being so curious and lifting the lid on the driving forces in my life.
Aline interviewed me for Lenscratch and we spoke at length about what it means to be a person driven by stories– not stories in the contemporary journalistic sense, but mythology from the culture of my ancestors.

Wonderful photos and great to lean more about the culture through the captions. You’ve become my favorite resource to learn about arctic indigenous cultures, which I was already passionate about!
