Publisher Comments:

Photographer and filmmaker Victor Masayesva, Jr., was raised in the Hopi village of Hotevilla and was educated at the Horace Mann School in New York, Princeton University, and the University of Arizona. His immersion in photographic experimentation embraces a projection of stories and symbols, natural objects, and locations both at Hopi and worldwide. His work has been exhibited internationally, and he is perhaps best known for his feature-length film Imagining Indians. For Masayesva, photography is a discipline that he approaches in a manner similar to the way that he was taught about himself and his clan identity. As he navigates his personal associations with Hopi subject matter in varied investigations of biology, ecology, humanity, history, planetary energy, places remembered, and musings on things broken and whole, he has created an extraordinary visual cosmography. In this compilation of his photographic journey, Masayesva presents some of the most important and vibrant images of that visual quest and reflects on them in provocative essays.

Book News Annotation:

In these compelling images, Masayesva, a photographer and filmmaker, layers photographs and hand-paintings to reify his personal associations of Hopi life with biology, ecology, history, planetary energy and memories. Masayesva, who was raised in the Hopi village of Hotevilla, also includes essays about Hopi culture and its relevance in his work. The result is a visual cosmography that is original without being inaccessible. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
