Camera Shy: Photographs
showcases the work of local self-taught photographers. Included are never-before-seen Polaroids by Raymond Thunder-Sky and works from Mary Annette Pember that focus on contemporary Native American culture and issues.

A decades-long feature on Cincinnati’s streets, Thunder-Sky spent years stoically walking the city dressed in a clown collar and construction hat. With a toolbox in tow to house his supplies, Thunder-Sky sketched demolition and construction sites throughout the metropolitan area. A Native American with rich family history, Thunder-Sky passed away in 2004, leaving behind over 2,000 original drawings. Established after his death, Thunder-Sky, Inc. stands today to preserve the legacy of its namesake and provide an exhibition space and ongoing support for other area unconventional artists.
