apaches and angels

Douglas Miles Photography
THE 3 types of stereotypical “Native-Theme” photography.
1: Airbrushed Landscape or pseudo-glam model
2: Faux/ pseudo historical , Edward S. Curtis anthropology type.
3: “Poverty Portfolio” focusing on environment, depression or addiction of Native People.

I want my photography to be a reflection of understated forgotten beauty and raw power of Native and Tribal People, not as victims but as victors in spite of it all. Stereotypes and categories aside, stay proud and be yourself. 

That’s all.
