The Amerind Museum celebrates the works of Southwest landscape and portrait photographer, Priscilla Tacheney. A member of the Navajo Nation, Priscilla has traveled to many scenic areas across the Southwest, looking to capture the beauty of Mother Earth and Father Sky. Through the lens of her camera, she sees and captures the beauty of the landscape and feels a connection with Nature's subjects and its energy. Her work in the field helped her appreciate and embrace the natural wonders of the Earth. She states, "As a nature photographer, I've become more aware of the deterioration of our planet's natural areas. Commercial expansion and climate change are changing the landscape at an accelerated rate. Therefore, it has become important to me to capture and document the beauty that exists today."
