It was almost exactly one year ago that we featured portrait photography by Ryan Red Corn, Osage, a creative force in Indian country who is already well known as a graphic designer, media consultant (with Buffalo Nickel Creative) and member of the 1491s. As a photographer, though, he’s gaining momentum—and fast. We checked his Facebook page and found another wealth of beautiful images of American Indians—both famous and not.
Red Corn has a few different series in the works—one of them, about Natives in finance and accounting, is represented here—and some other completed work he can’t share just yet. As a performer and educator with the 1491s, and a frequent presence at rallies and demonstrations all over Turtle Island, Red Corn is a travelin’ man who doesn’t limit his subject matter to Oklahoma NDNs. In other words, Ryan Red Corn could turn up in your town next, camera in hand. Look sharp, Indian country.
