ONE HEART Bob Charlo

Bob Charlo is an award winning, internationally known photographer best recognized for his images of American Indian dancers, regalia, and landscapes.  He was born twenty miles from the Kalispel Indian Reservation in the small town of Newport before moving to the Spokane area during his formative years as a child.  It was during these years that Bob became interested in art.  In 1977 Charlo attended the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  In 1980 he graduated with an Associate of Fine Arts degree in photography and 2-D design.  After moving to the Seattle area, Bob attended the University of Washington where he earned his B.F.A degree with a concentration in art and American Indian studies.  When asked about his work in the past, Bob Charlo has stated, “To me it represents that we — Native people — are still here and still vibrant. We are not a conquered people. We are a contributing people.”
