A longtime gallery artist Zig Jackson, also named Rising Buffalo, is an enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara) and the first Native American photographer to be awarded a Guggenheim fellowship.

The talk is Feb. 12 at 1:30p at the CCP Auditorium with free admission.

Jackson’s most recent work in the Native American homeland focuses on his culture and the changing way of life of both urban and reservation Indians, along with the attendant socio-political issues of the “Indian Condition.” In this series Jackson uses photography as a teaching and story-telling device to de-mythologize his own history and to break down the romanticized and racially charged stereotypes of Indians perpetuated in history and the media by presenting a simple straightforward journey. In the poetic photographic style of Henri Cartier-Bresson, and like Bill Owen’s work Suburbia, Jackson documents the joys of ordinary life with humor and empathy.

This program coincides with the opening of the Indian Photographing Indian: Zig Jackson’s Journey through Native America at the Andrew Smith Gallery. There will be an opening reception at the Andrew Smith Gallery with the artist on February 12th, 2022, from 7:00-10:00 pm. The show will continue through May 30, 2022.
