A Photographer’s Moving Tribute to the Pine Ridge from slate.com
When Aaron Huey first visited South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation in 2005, he didn’t expect that it would be a world-altering experience. He began the project as an objective photojournalist’s look at poverty in America. But after spending eight years documenting the residents of Pine Ridge, his professional and personal outlook has changed dramatically.
Before Huey arrived at Pine Ridge, all he knew about the Oglala Lakota tribe were the statistics: a startlingly low life expectancy along with a startlingly high rate of unemployment, poverty, violence, and infant mortality. Once Huey became embedded in the community and started talking to the people there, he knew the mechanisms of traditional journalism wouldn’t suffice to do the type of work he wanted to do with the Lakota people. “People there were telling me the most epic stories I’d ever heard, and people were talking about a history of genocide. I knew that word would never be used in the mainstream press. I knew right away I wasn’t OK with that, that I wanted a bigger piece of the truth than just more statistics and more pictures of poverty,” he said.
