The Jacob Spori Art Gallery presents "Vanishing Voices," a new exhibit by BYU photography professor Paul Adams. One language dies every 14 days, and there are 866 endangered languages in the U.S. alone. The portraits in the exhibit feature the last native speakers of endangered Native American languages with their closest living relative-who is not a fluent speaker. All of the images were created using a tintype plate process, one of the most archival photographic processes, and will stand as a permanent record long after the sitter, and his or her language, is gone.
