Ne-Dah-Ness Rose Greene
Artist Statement: I get inspired to photograph because (1) I can learn about different culture, learning different methods, be able to see my vision through my lens up close and personal; (2) many people have never seen wild rice that close up before, unprocessed out in the wild; and (3) I seek knowledge, open mindedness and truth.
