Piece description from the artist
I love to attend PowWows and frequent as many a year as I can fit into my schedule. Photographing the Pow Wow dancers is only one of the many reasons I look forward to going. Not only for the beautiful and intricate regalia, but the deeper meaning and traditions behind each dance.
Sheree Laskero is a contemporary photographer from Chicago and studied at The Illinois institute of Art- Chicago. Inspired by her grandfather who’s love of photographic documentation of all of life’s events, big and small.
Her art speaks to the artist in us all. She can find beauty in almost anything from the more traditional picturesque landscape, a building that has long ago fallen into ruins or a close up photograph of an everyday object.
