We Meet a Legend!

This movie requires Flash Player 9

This is Susie Yazzie. You might not recognize her as she is now 93 (wouldn’t know it by how nibble and strong her hands are) but you’ve most likely seen Josef Munich photo of her at the loom from decades ago. And if you’re really good with faces, she was in John Ford movies made here in the 40s and 50s! i just happened to ask about her and Bruce said that was the grandmother of the clan. So we drove right over to her home and meet her. It was simple a very, very special moment!

The photography was pretty darn simple because the light was amazing. The Hogan has a hole in the center letting in light as the front door which always faces east had killer light bouncing in. I just had to kneel and shoot. A very special moment for us!
