Gareth Smit | The Place Where the Clouds Are Formed
Country of Origin: South Africa
Project Location: Arizona, US
Collaborator: Ofelia Zepeda, Martin Zicari
Program: Photography in Collaboration
Gareth Smit seeks to combine photography, historical text, and poetry to investigate the borderlands of southwestern Arizona, the land of the Tohono O’odham, a Native American tribe. His project will document the impact of borders on spiritual territory, and the traumas of migrant deaths and disappearances on tribal land. He intends to develop a local presentation series that will travel to three towns in the Tohono O’odham Nation.
