Hayward Area Recreation District’s PhotoCentral presents two exciting views of Native American Celebrations, “Still Here: the Native American Celebrations photographs of Sue Reynolds” AND : “Kay Franke’s Silver Gelatin Powwow Prints”
Sue Reynolds is a fourth-generation Californian of Northern European descent. A fine arts and documentary photographer, she is passionate about creating bridges of understanding between non-Native and Native peoples. Since 2005, she has photographed Indian people and their celebrations across the West. Her images have appeared in exhibits in California, Montana and Japan, and in publications including Montana Magazine, Indian Country Today, Cowboys & Indians and her books, Proud People (2007) and Still Here: Not Living in Tipis (2013). She resides in Walnut Creek. You can see more of her work at www.susanreynoldsphotography.com.
Kay Franke was a long time volunteer and supporter of PhotoCentral and the arts in Hayward. When she died in 2003, she left a rich body of hand-tinted silver gelatin prints of Powwow’s and Native American portraits. PhotoCentral is proud to share these vintage and contemporary prints from the Kay Franke archive expressing both the traditions of Native Americans and of photography. Proceeds from sales of Kay Franke prints will go to PhotoCentral, the Red Cross and the American Indian College Fund. Thank you to Hahnemühle Fine Art for donations to make this exhibition possible.
