Alaskan Elders is a series of portraits of Alaskan Elders.  I was invitied by the Babiche Cultural Exchange to travel to four interior Alaskan villages, near the Arctic Circle, to create a visual document of the communities’ elders.  Local teens assisted on the photo shoots and the project was published in the book, “Native Voices, Native Faces.”  2001
