series of five photographs (chromogenic prints on metallic paper) signed edition of 25 with five proofs, collaboration with photographer Christopher Chapman & makeup artist Jackie Shawn

“The studio portraits, shot, printed, and framed to emulate antique daguerrotypes, feature my alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle in various performance guises. The photos trace the history of Aboriginal performance culture — more specifically 'Indians' performing for a European audience.”
