About Dana Gluckstein:
Gluckstein studied psychology and art at Stanford, where a semester abroad in Italy sparked her love for photography. Gluckstein has photographed iconic figures like Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. Gluckstein began creating portraits of Indigenous Peoples in Haiti in 1983 after working on an advertising campaign in the Caribbean. “It is my sincere wish that DIGNITY will serve as a critical call-to-action in support of all Indigenous Peoples,” said Gluckstein. “’The ancient ones tell us where we have come from and where we must go as a world community. Humanity’s survival depends on how carefully we listen.”
