Welcome to the visual world of Helga Teiwes. As staff photographer for the Arizona
State Museum from 1964 to 1993, Helga documented Southwest American Indian culture
and arts, archaeological excavations, and the Museum's collections.
Her fine technical skills coupled with a remarkable ability to build rapport
with her subjects resulted in an invaluable treasure trove of photographs. These
images have special resonance among the communities Helga photographed, communities
where today residents are also picking up cameras to document their own cultures.
This exhibition presents examples of the work of Helga
Teiwes spanning her career at the museum. Also included are selected photographs
from her personal collection. All reflect Helga's keen "eye on culture."
