This week Danny was leaving his apartment for an event when a photographer stepped in front of him and snapped the image above. Danny told the photographer “why are you disrespecting me,” and he continued, “….what are you trying to do?”.

….many Native Americans were wary of having their photographs taken and often refused. They believed that the process could steal a person’s soul and disrespected the spiritual world… – American Indians of the Pacific Northwest – Library Of Congress

The image above was the result of this altercation.
