Being of Iroquois stock myself, a few years ago when the Smithsonian Museum was holding a national Pow Wow to celebrate the opening of the Museum of the American Indian, I took my son and wife to the Pow Wow. The experience was second only to the election of Barack Obama to the presidency on the personal thrill scale. I captured about a dozen very memorable images that weekend. This image, entitled American Icons began as a shot of two tribal leaders sharing a quiet conversation before the Grand March. Ultimately I stripped it down to its bare essentials two magnificent headdresses and the Washington Monument.

Wayne D. King’s images are a celebration of life, blending the real and the surreal to achieve a sense of place or time that reaches beyond the moment into a dreamlike quintessentialism designed to spark an emotional response. Using digital enhancement, handcrafting, painting, and sometimes even straight photography, King seeks to take the viewer to a place that is beyond simple truth to where truth meets passion, hope and dreams.
