Photographic Journey through Native America

Faces from the Land: A Photographic Journey through Native America, is a traveling exhibition by Ben and Linda Marra that documents the proud spirit and identity of American Indian powwow dancers throughout the United States and Canada.

This extraordinary exhibition features forty of Ben Marra's large color portraits of powwow dancers. The photographs are accompanied by personal narratives written by the subjects (compiled by Linda Marra), describing the tribal significance of their regalia and dances. These striking images, paired with the text, vividly detail the magic of the powwow - a thrilling juxtaposition of ancient tradition and modern culture.

A 20-year retrospective of the Marras' work titled Faces from the Land: Twenty Years of Powwow Tradition will be published in March 2009.

See the exhibit at Salt Lake City's main public library.
