Since looking, contemplating and recording many aspects of contemporary life amongst the population of native Americans is particularly nothing new, perhaps it would be of some value to consider the content of these photographs from an alternative point of view. The very essence of each photograph is a testimony to the absolute, pure and complete presence of the photographer in front of his chosen subjects.
A symbiotic exchange and presence which is acknowledged and returned by the gaze of his chosen subjects, in their attempt to articulate and restate their individual and collective expression of a multi fasceted cultural heritage and complex legacies.
Perhaps the photographer's interest in going into the distance, as far as placing himself in front of each of his chosen subjects, speaks of high degree of empathy and identification with the current contemporary challenges in various discourses regarding identity politics, cultural
displacement and fragmentation of cultural heritage.
The presence and characteristics of clothing, accessories and grooming of each individual depicted by Kamal Mohammadi Zadeh embodies a high degree of insistence, performance and that of cultural resistance. The above visual elements act as tools for animating and re-constructing their endangered heritage in the context of colonial history and rapid globalization.The slightly compromised and contrived
traditional clothing and make-ups, which also embody the spirit and consequences of an urban and consumerist society in which these men and women live, raise the question of "cultural authenticity" in the age of rapid change. The colors and types of fabrics used to remake the traditional clothing's are drawn and adapted from mass produced fabrics available in the local markets. It seems clear that in these photographs history and heritage have turned into semi-theatrical gestures.
We the viewers and Kamal Mohammadi Zadeh the photographer by positioning ourselves in front of these human subjects, individually and collectively assist and partake in the plight of these people in their act of cultural expression and resistance. Perhaps the content of each one of these photographs will turn into a reflective surface for allowing us to contemplate and re evaluet the urgent preservation and continuity of our own varied and colorful cultural heritages too!

The subjects of these photographs exude the pride of peoples fighting stubbornly for centuries to remain themselves. The colourful traditional costumes they wear represent the diversity of indigenous nations found from coast to coast and reflect the traditions and dignity that bring them to life. In the photos some are smiling, some passionate, some somewhat shy, yet each have their own way of expressing their pride; young and old alike all impress upon us a desire to perpetuate the essence of their identity. Most of the pictures in this exhibit were taken during the First Peoples' Festival which has been held in Montreal every summer for over 20 years. The photographer, Kamal, is of Iranian origin. Kamal’s photos have been published in numerous books, magazines and newspapers. His photos have also been exposed in the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal and the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa. First Nations: Proud of Our Heritage! is a realization of the First Nations Circle of UQAM, who would like the exhibit to be seen by as many people as possible. Simply contact us to request that we lend you the exhibition. It is free. Made of water-resistant material, the exhibition can also be installed outside. Open to all! Free admission! No reservations required! There will be art performances during the event!
