06.15.10: Don James - One Nation, One Year

Don James presents a slideshow of One Nation, One Year (LPD Press, $24.99), a photographic journey documenting his year long trip across the Navajo Nation - a travel of over 10,000 miles on dirt roads, horseback, on foot and as a hitchhiker - to record the arts, traditions, sports, and people of the Navajo.  . The Navajo Nation and its people have been extensively photographed over the last century, but never from the eye of one of its own; because he's native, and knows the land and people, James embarks on a journey to show the world a different view of his culture, through his eyes and his Nikon lens, and his understanding of the Navajo gives us a glimpse at a people previously off-limits to outsiders.
