Edward S. Curtis: The Women
By Christopher Cardozo
Between 1900 and 1930, American photographer Edward S. Curtis traveled from the Northwest coast, through the Rocky Mountains and down to Mexico recording and photographing more than eighty Native American tribes still “practicing the old ways.” What Curtis created was the most comprehensive record of traditional Native Americans. Edward S. Curtis: The Women is a hauntingly beautiful collection of one hundred sepia images of Native American women going about their daily lives. Curtis’ photographs are stunningly elegant portraits of a different time and place.
