Tachiinii Photography

Yá’át’ééh!
(Hello in Navajo)

I was born and raised on the Navajo Reservation. I am born to the Tachii’nii (Red Running into the Water clan) and born for the Tl’aashchí’í (Red Bottom People clan).  As an Indigenous photographer and a storyteller, I develop photographic narratives that illustrate the real stories of American Indians within the environments and communities that they live in. I capture the emotions, the beauty, and the modern reality of American Indians.

My work has been featured in Indian Country Today Media, Reuters News, Navajo Times, American Indian Quarterly Magazine and many bloggers, online publications and news outlets. Additionally, my photography has been exhibit at 118 Winston Street – These Days Gallery, Venice Arts Center, LACDA, Los Angeles Center of Photography.
                                                                                                                                                                 
My fascination with photography comes from the catchphrase “capture the moment.” As a child living on a tribal reservation, I recall my parents having a
Pamela J.Peters
Yashica camera that I was intrigued by. I would pretend to take images of my friends even though there was no film loaded in the camera. I would look into the mirror of the camera, direct images and click.  To me it was a game and a memory only I could capture, and it was something I enjoyed. I loved using my imagination. Now, my imagination takes flight and I am capturing them all on film.

 

“I love photography because I am able to not only capture the moment, but the soul and beauty of people.”
