BFA Photography candidates in the ASU School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts

The ASU School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts presents a group photography exhibition featuring BFA students entitled, Diné Bikéyah: Familiar Views, Foreign Eyes, Sept. 13–24.

Presented in the school’s Step Gallery, this group exhibition is the culmination of a three-month excursion, led by Tiffiney Yazzie, into the heart of the Navajo Nation in Chinle, Ariz. Yazzie’s family invited several ASU photography undergraduate students during May – July 2010, to immerse themselves into the traditions and historical customs of the Navajo. The artists were profoundly affected from being exposed to an unfamiliar land and lifestyle. The result of their cumulative experience is a body of photographs that reveals self-discovery and their bourgeoning relationship to a regional community.
