Aaron Huey: Mitakuye Oyasin: All My Relations (Pine Ridge Reserve)

Aaron Huey has photographed the Oglala Lakota for seven years. The community of Sioux is confined to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, about 75 miles southeast of the Black Hills. 

*I can’t find one description of this project that isn’t problematic, so I leave it to others to research on their own. Despite the accolades of TED talks, National Geographic and now a movie shot with OBEY, there are still complex issues over an outsider, entrenched in colonial implications, taking pictures of this community and presenting it to the outside world. Because of some issues over photos of sacred ceremonies that the photographer took, I have chosen to exclude those images from this post. THAT SAID the 7 year investment the photographer has made to establish real relationships with the community and explore a highly complex social/political/colonial issue can be respected.

The best thing to come out of this project is arguably the Pine Ridge Community Storytelling Project. This collection tells the story of life on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, told by the people of Pine Ridge in their own unedited words.

Filippo Negroli (1510 - 1579)

love at the first sight

Filippo Negroli was the most innovative and celebrated Italian armourer of the period. For a clientele that included the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V; King Francis I of France and the dukes of Urbino, he made magnificent parade armour: intricately worked helmets, cuirasses, shields and other showoff pieces designed more for ceremonial than battle use. Adapted from motifs of antiquity, they flatteringly conferred on their wearers the exalted aspect of Roman emperors, generals and mythological figures like Hercules.

He was the most illustrious member of an armour-making dynasty that lasted for more than 100 years, beginning in Milan around the mid-15th century and fading out past the middle of the 16th. A member of the fourth generation of Negroli armourers, Filippo became a master in the design of steel armour, achieving a reputation as the era’s greatest embosser of its surfaces. The technique, known as repousse, involves hammering designs on the underside of the plate, then refining them on the outside by delicate ‘chasing’ with chisels and punches. With some knowledge of the sculpture of Greece and Rome, and a lot of his own free invention, Negroli specialized in what was called all’antica, contemporary armour that had the aura of ancient civilizations. He used motifs like dragons, lions, bats, foliage and Medusa heads along with more fanciful images in ingenious ensembles, put together with consummate technical skill.
