Tom Jones

First People — For the past four years Tom Jones has been photographing the tension that lays between the traditional and contemporary views within his tribe, The Ho Chunk Nation of Wisconsin. Tom is deeply committed to the responsibility of representing his people but also carrying forward an intimate inside view of a culture that has predominantly been documented by outsiders wishing to exoticize Native Americans.
