Thosh is a board member of Native Wellness Institute. His upcoming project is a campaign promoting health, nutrition and fitness from an indigenous perspective. “It will look like a fitness campaign but with a modern Native edge,” he explains. Although Collins is often on the road, either driving across state lines or sitting on international flights, he finds strength through the people he meets. They have entrusted him to represent them accurately. He feels responsible for the image he captures and disseminates. Through each print and digital image, Collins is countering the decades of misappropriation. His resolve is steadfast. As a Native photographer, the camera is his tool and mirror.
