CARA ROMERO. Hermosa, 2021

This spectacular image was captured candidly during an intimate shoot at sunset with my daughter, Crickett Tiger, on the shore of Hermosa Beach. Going to Los Angeles was a homecoming to my birthplace, but it was also a pilgrimage to the Chemehuevi place of creation. These months we spent at the beach became a modern remembrance of Chemehuevi creation stories and creation songs and the mythos of Great Ocean Woman (Hutsipamamow).They became a visualization of the indigeous worldview that these places, however developed, are still holy places to First Peoples. – Cara Romero
