"This is a self-portrait made in December of
1977 when I was still going to Brooks Institute of Photography . . .
I came across this scene near Santo Domingo Pueblo, zoomed past it and
did a double take of the blurred building that I saw in the corner of
my eye. I thought to myself, 'Did I see what I thought I saw?' and did
a U-turn. The scene was so bad that it was good. After seeing it clearly,
my only thought was, 'Hey, I'm a real Indian . . .'"
