Photographer M.J. Alexander has spent years documenting the people of Oklahoma through her unique photographic style. In 2006, THS featured her work in an exhibit featuring photographs of Centenarians in Oklahoma. Her latest series introduces the youngest generation of Oklahomans by capturing profound images of their lives.
Pictures depict children keeping traditions alive – through the rodeo circuit, harvest festivals, ranch barbeques, Vietnamese ceremonies, cowboy church services, Mexican folkloric dances, Czech parades, Indian language schools – and others being exposed to life in Oklahoma for the first time.
