Aaron Huey - National Geographic Magazine: Pine Ridge
Aaron Huey captures so much of this community through his photo journalism. It was hard to pick photos from this series as well, but for different reasons than the last post. In the past couple years, Native American culture was so fetishized within the popular culture and tumblr culture and choosing photos that would just fit neatly into that context seemed wrong. Alongside the photos of native americans wearing headdresses are photos of children in dilapidated houses, filled with garbage and people overcome with consumption. There is a ted talk you can watch about him and his work here.
Now that’s a motherfucking gifset.
sweet jesus i want one
"I wish I’d partied a little less. People always say ‘be true to yourself.’ But that’s misleading, because there are two selves. There’s your short term self, and there’s your long term self. And if you’re only true to your short term self, your long term self slowly decays."
