Perception: A Photo Series is a collection of 32 thought-provoking black and white images of First Nation, Inuit and Métis men and women living in Winnipeg during 2014. This photography and book project was inspired by racist comments made by a non-Indigenous political candidate about Indigenous people. These comments indicated a level of racial discrimination remained active and commonplace in this large urban centre. KC Adams set to work to photograph Indigenous people who volunteered to pose for two photographs. One photo captured their honest reactions to thinking about negative stereotypical labels these individuals had encountered. The second portrait captured their joyous reaction when asked to recall an outstanding moment from their past. The images were then labeled with negative terms such as welfare mom, dirty little Indian, tax burden, or terrorist. Look again is added to the image. Set side by side is the smiling portrait of the model who was asked to recall feelings of love and happiness. The results were overwhelmingly transformative. Each positive image was labeled by the model with their name, nation along with descriptive terms such as mom, dad, grandmother, business owner, traditional dancer, bannock maker, taxpayer, and homeowner. The result is a 120-page book that is a powerful tool for educators to examine current examples of racial and cultural stereotypes. This volume includes a critical essay by Cathy Mattes (Michif curator, writer, and art history professor at Brandon University, in Brandon, Manitoba); Foreword, Before Words by Katherena Vermette (Métis author); and In the Beginning by KC Adams and The Perception Series: KC Adams, and the Value of Socially Engaged Art by KC Adams (Cree/Ojibway/British Winnipeg-based artist who graduated from Concordia University with a B.F.A in studio arts. Currently an instructor in Visual and Aboriginal Art at Brandon University). Highly recommended for secondary level Indigenous Studies courses, along with public and university libraries.
