A photographic lens can provide a rare and authentic look on environment, culture, and everyday life. Starting Tuesday, June 12, Scottsdale's Heard Museum North invites the public to take a look through the lenses of contemporary Navajo photographers. The exhibition, "Through The Lens: Diné Photographers," is on loan from the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock, Arizona, and marks the first time a show curated by a regional museum of American Indian arts/culture has been featured at Heard.
Curators describe the exhibition as a celebration of the photographers’ homes -- their land, lives, and contemporary surroundings through traditional rites of passage, family activities, and consideration for their environment.
