Tucker, Toba; Swenzell, Rina; Bush, Alfred L.
166pp.Toba Tucker's expressive portraits honouring Pueblo artists were made over a two-and-a-half year sojourn in the Southwest. These photographs form a record for history and art at the end of the twentieth century and portray Tucker's interest in the individuals and families who pass their artistic traditions from one generation to the next. The portraits reflect the sense of belonging that she so evidently found among the people who welcomed her into their homes, and they attest to her abiding respect and deep appreciation for the native traditions that continue to carry the Pueblo spirit.
