I have been notified that my wet plate of Ernie LaPointe "Crow Foot", Lakota is going to grace the front cover of a new book about my dear friend and his life as the Great Grandson of Sitting Bull. I took this portrait on 11-3-2017 (Plate #2517) in my old make-shift studio. I cannot give any further details right now but as soon as I can I will share the official cover once published. The original black glass ambrotype is permanently curated at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona.
Ernie and I have been together from the very beginning of my creative journey. I am forever grateful for not only his friendship but for his trust back on September 6th, 2014, the day he first walked into my studio as a complete stranger.
