William Wilson (Diné)
Photography and installation
Tucson, Arizona

Will Wilson has exhibited his work throughout the United States and is represented at the Heard Museum’s Berlin Gallery.  “My work is a response to the ways in which photography has been used as a mechanism of colonization,” he says. “Decolonizing photography for the use of American Indians has to occur through the articulation of a Native representational subjectivity. In the place of colonizing representation, I want to produce images and sensory experience, which convey representations of, by and for American Indians. This means developing a methodological practice, a framework from which to draw upon. It is towards these ends that I see my work progressing.”
