2012 Tribal Homelands Calendar Goes to Press.

Photographs Jeremy Wade Shockley/The Southern Ute Drum

Rolling of the printing presses today, is a project that has been a labour of love for over twelve months, the Southern Ute Indian Tribe’s 2012 calandar. This yearly project falls under the newspaper staff and varies greatly in context from year to year.
Setting out on many a crisp morning last winter I began to make images of the reservation landscapes, hoping to capture a certain timelessness in each photograph. That a viewer would in turn be able to make a very tactile connection with the familiar landscapes.
Titled Homelands of the Ute, this intimate look at seasonal change across the Southern Ute landscape is certainly worth a visit.
Happy New Year!
Best, Jeremy

An Epic Adventure…

After an epic adventure in the Grand Canyon- despite a sandstorm, followed by icy winds- we explored the Northern realm of Arizona, gracing some of the iconic sites associated with the Southwest. Antelope Canyon was a highlight! Located on Tribal Lands, this landmark is part of the Navajo Nation and can provide some awe inspiring views throughout the day, as light and shadow shift with the changing sun!
