!! Call for Photos !! (7/1/20)
A new book on Zuñi Fetishes is in preparation. This is a comprehensive book starting with early history but with emphasis on the past 40 years. The title of the book is “Releasing the Spirit”.
I am looking for photos to complement the text – mostly photos of individual fetishes but also fetish necklaces. Of particular interest are quality pieces by non-prolific or non-mainstream Zuñi carvers.
Contact me if you have any items you think might be of interest. If you can supply the image, artist name, date made and material. For several images, group them in one photo for initial consideration.
Your initial photo(s) need not be of high-quality resolution nor have plain background. Accepted art work may or may not be included in the final version of the book. However, pieces that are used will be either credited by donor name or listed as ‘private collection’ or ‘anonymous’. No compensation will be offered.
There is no initial submission deadline at this time.
