John Running photographed the Hopi Social Dance Group - “Homolovi” on the 5th & 6th of July, 2008. He had a unique opportunity when the group “Homolovi” was scheduled to perform at Heritage Square in Flagstaff, AZ during the Fourth of July weekend. He invited them to use the Flagstaff Photography Center to change into their traditional dance clothes and then set up a studio space and made these photos prior to and after their performances.
John Running has been photographing American Indians throughout his forty year career as a freelance photographer. His book “Honor Dance” celebrates his work with Native Americans.
