As Erin and the Ubuntu team discuss, it’s important not to oversimplify the story of the people you’re photographing.
Instead, strive to focus on ways that you can portray your subject such that their story is told in a modern way, not an archaic manner that is so prevalent when photographing indigenous people.
Erin makes the point that she wants to “convey a rich, deep, complicated story of human life” in her photos.
That might sound like a lofty goal, but as you can see in the video, it’s definitely one worth pursuing.
