Nicolette Hume

Great Basin Native Artist

I am a Western Shoshone Indian woman who is originally from Northern Nevada. As a child, I spent a lot of time in "Indian Country." My profession is social work, and I formerly worked on my reservation in Northern Nevada. I turned to photography as a cathartic outlet from the pressures of reservation life. The photos I've shot represent to me more than simply "beautiful scenery," but also a legacy for my kids and the land that Native Americans revere. I've used photography to record the unadulterated beauty of contemporary indigenous landscapes, particularly on my Western Shoshone Reservation.
