The Names of the Full Moon

Early Native Americans kept track of time by observing the seasons and lunar months. They named the 12 full moons of the year often by describing particular events that usually occurred during that time in their location. Thunder Moon in July for example heralded the frequent thunderstorms during the month. This full moon was also known as the Buck Moon, because bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time. 


I´ve been printing at the Bushwick Print Lab in Brooklyn with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline. A small edition of framed silver and black prints is available in my shop through march 2015.
