Clark Dunbar : Native Americans – The PowWow Portrait Project – A Fine Art Series


Clark Dunbar’s ‘The PowWow Portrait Project – A Fine Art Series’ is a celebration of the culture and personalities of Native American/ Indigenous Peoples of all ages from the youth to the elders in traditional regalia. The portraits are photographed on location at PowWows across Montana in a mini-studio with formal, classic style lighting. Each individual carries their character, history, family, traditions, pride and cultural heritage. The PowWow is both the celebration and the continuance and teaching of the traditions to the next generation.

The 2023 Series is now scheduling exhibits and shows at museums and galleries around the world. The 2024 PowWow portrait sessions are in the planning and scheduling phase to expand the series for more shows and a book project.
