Developing Stories Native Photographers in the Field is a series of three photo essays created by Native photojournalists Donovan Quintero (Diné), Tailyr Irvine (Diné / Ho-Chunk), and Russel Albert Daniels (Salish / Kootenai) in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. These photographers share the same desires to break down stereotypes of Native peoples and to portray the diversity and complexity of their contemporary lives.

Each photographer explores an issue that is of deep personal interest to them and touches the lives of Native people in a specific community. Their essays feature poignant and compelling photography. Together, they provide thought-provoking insights into contemporary Native life and nuanced perspectives on an American experience that is largely invisible to mainstream society.
