I collared him later and he said he was going to use the photographs to do 4X6 paintings for a gallery in LA. I am very petite but I grew about three feet when he said that. I made him give me his film. I told him I would kill him if he didn't hand it to me. :) He gave it to me and I destroyed it. Then I explained why I  wasn't going to let him ruin a very important ceremony for a young man. I really do believe he "got" it.

    I spent 10 years on the road with members of the Navajo, Hopi and Ute tribes and my photography is completely different than it was when we started. I will forever be grateful for that experience.
