“I’ve seen blood, sweat, and tears poured into their looms and felt the struggle to keep culture & tradition thriving”
Behind the Loom is a collection of images & essays documenting Navajo Weaving, one of the most sought after Native American art forms, by Navajo photographer, Fleurette Estes. Inspired by the labor of her stepmother and sister, both famed master-weavers, Fleurette was compelled to pick up her camera and document the stories, struggles and people keeping the weaving traditions alive.
