Photographer Kevin G. Saunders is acutely aware of the responsibility that comes with taking someone’s portrait.
“150 years ago, Indigenous people were terrified of photography because they thought they were going to steal their souls,” Saunders said. “So I always thought, what if there was something to this?” What if I steal your soul? Then I have the responsibility to really take care of it. And return it in better condition than when I took it.
