Higher Ground

A few months ago I was hired by the Quileute Tribe to document their life on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

This was a part of their efforts to be awarded a grant from the Washington State Community Economic Revitalization

Board for the “Move to Higher Ground project”. The very future of the tribe is in great danger should a tsunami hit that

part of the Washington coast. The tribal school is just feet from the water’s edge and the town would have just minutes

to evacuate. GREAT NEWS, they have been awarded the grant and plans are now under way to relocate the tribe to a safe

location out of harms way. This was an incredible experience for me and I hope to go back soon for more shots as the

project moves forward. Here are just a few images from that time of the amazing people and their hauntingly beautiful home.
