Zoe Urness (Tlingit Alaskan)
About the Artist
As a Tlingit/Cherokee Native American photographer Zoe is dedicated to sharing images of strong Native leaders and rich images of sacred and wise elders with the world. She strives to bring to life the images of eager young people who are the next generation to pass on the traditions. Through her images she hopes one can travel back in time as well as realize that Native traditions are still practiced today. Her vision is to preserve the traditional culture through photographs that show modern native people in traditional settings and in traditional regalia that they have made or that has been passed on in their family for generations.
