Indigenous Rising, photographed by Nadya Kwandibens (Red Works) in partnership with Photographers Without Borders (PWB), is a portrait series featuring Indigenous artists, scholars, media-makers, activists, and survivors. The work focuses on stories of Indigenous resistance, reclamation, resurgence, decolonization, and intelligence. Portraits are accompanied by a message from each participant and will be on display throughout Kensington Market for the month of May during CONTACT Photography Festival.
