Visions of My People: A proud celebration of the Laguna People, and of American history, talent, culture, and diversity from America's best-loved Native American Photographer.

Benny with Horse at Sheep Camp

"All the subjects in my photos are people who were close to me on the Pueblo. This familiarity gave them a tangible sense of comfort and ease in the presence of the camera, and that sense comes across in my photographs.

"This image of Benny Pacheco is no exception. I took this photo of him as he stood with his horse at the Sheep Camp just a short distance from Laguna. My then teenage son, Chris, was with me at the time. It reveals Benny in the earthy, honest, sinewy environment that knew so well. Benny's health was already in decline at the time. This photograph's unassuming candor touched a lot of hearts at my show in London, England."
