The Photography of Edward S. Curtis

Edward Curtis was one of the most famous photographers of his time. He recognized that Native American Indian tribes were vanishing and that their traditions were in danger of being lost. He spent years documenting the Native American tribes in the Western United States and produced an amazingly prolific body of work that remains influential in our understanding of Native Americans. These photographs are extraordinary.
