Bismarck photographer’s work shown in Chicago museum

CHICAGO (KVRR) – A Native American dress that was photographed by a Bismarck photographer is being featured in Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History.

The dress worn by Kimberley La Ronge, named “the Grandmother Dress,” was photographed by Shane Balkowitsch.

“She had to hand-stitch this dress all herself and make this all herself and donate it and have her portrait of her accompany that dress to the field museum, that is spectacular,” Balkowitsch said.

Balkowitsch has over 60 pieces in museums around the world.
