SHEDDING light on the identities of American Indian people through the use of photography, 'Captured' is a new exhibition being held at Rainmaker Gallery in Coldharbour Road.

Running from March 5 to May 30, the exhibition will showcase six contemporary American Indian fine art photographers who will surprise and delight with sublime and arresting imagery.

Chemehuevi photographer Cara Romero creates both intimate portraits and playful reconstructions of iconic works, featuring performance art hero 'Buffalo Man'.

Navajo artist Will Wilson combines digital technology with historic photographic processes to develop otherworldly portraits for his ongoing "Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange" project.

There are turns towards tradition as Tlingit photographer Zoe Urness' sepia prints on wood focus on more romantic themes of ceremony and nature, while Sarah Sense weaves photographs of her world travels into intriguing textures using the Chitamacha basketwork patterns of her tribe.

Debra Yepa-Pappan captures her hometown of Chicago in glorious colours, selectively overlaying patterns that celebrate her New Mexico and Korean heritage.
