The North American Indians: A Selection of Photographs by Edward S. Curtis
by Edward S. Curtis
Publisher's Description
During the period from 1896 until 1930, Edward S. Curtis travelled throughout the United States, recording Native American peoples and their way of life. The North American Indians as his project was called, comprised twenty volumes of text, each accompanied by a portfolio of plates. There is nothing similar to this work in the history of photography. Many of the most significant images from the original Curtis project have been selected for this Aperture book. Joseph Epes Brown has written an introduction about the traditional beliefs and values of American Indians. Brown has also selected the texts to accompany the photographs. "For documentary photography at its best, The North American Indian is highly recommended."--Popular Photography
