VAUNDA MICHEAUX NELSON

HARRY BICKET

“It’s a language which is very hard to talk about and that’s why I do it, because it actually expresses things that otherwise are not able to be expressed.”

LADIES OF THE CANYONS

“They were curious and interested in what they didn’t know and so they went out to find out more about the world and also to find out more about themselves.”
