Many people here pitched in and helped Aji & Wings fund a one man show Wings was honored with by the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
[the exhibit] explores the identity of Taos Pueblo from an insider's perspective through Wings's chosen media: photography and sterling silver. The show features ten photographs of Taos Pueblo's classic architecture and iconography, presented in a wholly different way. Instead of concentrating on the famed multi-level houses ubiquitous in photos everywhere, Wings brings the existential details into focus:The exhibit, Taos Pueblo: Ancestral Places, Sacred Spaces, closed May 11th, and Aji has posted a retrospective online:There is so much more to our ancestral lands, our sacred spaces, that people never see. Some of that is purposeful: Our traditions require privacy and secrecy, and there is much that is not available to outsiders. But even in the public areas of the Pueblo, what visitors see and what I see are two very different things.
I may not be around much today to tend the diary & comments (it's my wedding anniversary today), but I would encourage anyone who's interested to go read the retrospective, and share the links around. DKos is my 'social media', so this is my way of sharing, and giving back to those who contributed. Thanks for reading.
