'The richly varied work of 20th- and 21st-century Native artists who make up the bulk of the book, edited by John Rohrbach and Will Wilson, moves beyond constricting categories and has the power of poetry' - New York Times

A book that reveals and examines Indigenous artists' explorations of themes such as identity, belonging and the assistance that Indigenous worldviews can provide to building healthier relationships with each other and the earth

The book comprises four sections bridged by transitions and ending with a globalization of the discussion. Texts by key Indigenous scholars are followed by a series of plates illustrating many of the exhibition works. 
Speaking with Light is a summary statement about the preoccupations and dynamism of Indigenous photography today.

Artists and photographers include: Nicholas Galanin, Sky Hopinka, Zig Jackson, Kapulani Landgraf, Dylan McLaughlin, Alan Michelson, Shelley Niro, Jolene Rickard, Wendy Red Star, Cara Romero, Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie and Sarah Sense.
