In these compelling images, Masayesva, a photographer and filmmaker, layers photographs and hand-paintings to reify his personal associations of Hopi life with biology, ecology, history, planetary energy and memories. Masayesva, who was raised in the Hopi village of Hotevilla, also includes essays about Hopi culture and its relevance in his work. The result is a visual cosmography that is original without being inaccessible.
