Indian Days – Evie Lovett

Evie Lovett Four DaysTraditions typically hidden from glare and intrusive eyes are revealed to photographer Evie Lovett and novelist Suzanne Kingsbury in the current Indian Days photography exhibit at the Vermont Center for Photography from February 5 to 28, 2010.

Both white; both aware of the generations of exploitations;  both aware of the stereotypes found in presenting the North American Indian community;  Evie and Suzanne traveled from Vermont to Browning, Montana for the North American Indian Days where families gather during this time to celebrate with long held traditions of drumming and dancing.

Capturing the beauty of the traditional and modern North American Indian family, Evie Lovette uses a 50 year old Rolleiflex and develops her own film.  The richness of Evie’s photographs is enchanting.

All photographs on exhibit are for sale and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Piegan Institute, which preserves and teaches the Blackfeet language and culture.

The Vermont Center for Photography is located at 49 Flat Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301.
