Stanley Lucero (Laguna) has been a photographer for a number of years and is slowly adjusting to digital format. The photographs on display were taken with a single lens reflex and a 4-by-5 medium format press camera. Stan is a veteran of both tribal government and the U.S. Marine Corps as a tribally elected official (Lt. Governor, Tribal Treasurer and Councilman) and also as a combat veteran with service in the Republic of VietNam.
Stan and his wife Cecelia currently serve as lifelong members to the AISES Council of Elders. He has three children and two grandchildren.
Artist Statement: The geography of the southwest is vast and has unlimited potential for good photographic documentation of its features and that is why I prefer this style versus portraiture.
