Art Exhibit by Adam Sings In The Timber at HWLC

Artwork by Adam Sings In The Timber, Crow, is on display during Native American Heritage Month in November on the 3rd floor of Harold Washington Library Center.

The documentary photographer and filmmaker graduated from the University of Montana in Missoula with a degree in journalism. Documenting Native American life is Sings In The Timber’s main purpose as a photojournalist as it's his desire to capture all the nuances of Native Americans and to present them to the non-Native world as well as preserve them for future Native American generations.

In addition to freelance and commercial photography, Sings In The Timber is currently working on a photo book documenting the Crow tribe of Montana to be titled Apsáalooke Nation. Born and raised in Montana, Sings In The Timber lives in Chicago with his wife and children.

Artist Statement

“So much of Native American history has been recorded and told by non-Natives. And I’m glad it’s there, but I think it’s time we use our own voices to tell our story. I think it is fundamentally important for Native Americans to preserve our culture for future generations."
