Edward S. Curtis and "The North American Indian"

Modern Prints

Description

This unique photographic exhibition is being created expressly to allow powerful images of the North American Indian to be more widely exhibited and seen. Freed from the limitations imposed by sensitive vintage photographs, this exhibition will be available to communities without modern museums and in exhibition venues without sophisticated environmental controls.

The principal goal of each sixty-print exhibition is to celebrate Native Americans and their history and culture. The exhibition will pay homage to the famed photographer/ethnographer Edward S. Curtis and will illustrate the broad and extraordinary diversity of North American tribes.

Each exhibition will contain sixty museum-quality fine art photographic prints; most prints will be re-creations of extremely rare processes originally employed by Curtis for his most prized images. This exhibition will be a radical improvement upon all previous exhibitions of non-vintage Curtis photographs.
