Last night, at the 2015 Louisville 24th National Juried Photography Show, my image of the Northern Cheyenne Dancer won an Artistic Achievement Award. I'm honored to have received this very special recognition for my work. I captured this image in 2013 at the Plains Indian Powwow in Cody, Wyoming. The dancer, Waycie Roundtree of the Northern Cheyenne tribe, was resting between performances of the Men's Traditional Dance. I processed the photograph to reflect the timeless spirit of the powwow, in celebration of the past and the present.
Two additional images of mine were also selected for the 2015 Louisville National Photography Show:
I captured this image in Yellowstone National Park in January, 2015, when the temperature was -9 F. The bison's breath condensed into ice crystals on his fur and a freezing fog coated him with frost.
Dead Forest at Tangled Creek
This image is also from Yellowstone National Park in January, 2015. The forest remains standing, although the trees have been killed by absorbing toxic elements from the geothermal creek that runs nearby.
The LAA National Juried Photography Show runs from May 30th through June 7th, 2015 in Louisville, Colorado.
