5-650-3435  stock photo of Alaska, Anchorage, Alaskan Native woman with beaded headdress

Photographing this Alutiiq woman at the Alaskan Native Heritage Center in Anchorage I was drawn by her colorful beaded headdress and feathered snowfalling dress. At the end of the portrait session, drawing in close to a simple focus on her eyes framed by beads gave the most engaging image. Often only a small part of the scene is all that is needed to tell the whole story.
