Photography exhibit points lens at Navajo Nation

August 24, 2010

Students from the ASU Herberger Institute’s School of Art present "Diné Bikéyah: Familiar Views, Foreign Eyes" – a group photographic exhibition, opening Sept. 13, at the Step Gallery on the ASU Tempe campus. The exhibition features a culmination of work completed from over the summer by ASU undergraduate photography majors.

Led by undergraduate art history and photography major Tiffiney Yazzie, a group of undergraduates experienced a new world unfamiliar to them by traveling to Chinle, Arizona, where the Yazzie family invited them to stay in the heart of the Navajo Nation. "Diné Bikéyah: Familiar Views, Foreign Eyes" exposes a self-discovery of experiences and discovers the traditional lifestyle of the Navajo through an exploration of the land and the people that is personal, intimate and responsive.

The exhibit is scheduled to run through Sept. 24. For more information on the exhibit, contact Tiffiney Yazzie at 480-415-4715 or
