The complete portfolios by Edward S. Curtis on Native Americans

At the turn of the 20th century, the American photographer Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868–1952) started on his 30-year project to produce a monumental study of North American Indians. Using an approach that was both artistically and scientifically ambitious, he recorded, in words and pictures, the traces of the traditional Indian way of life that was already beginning to die out.

With tireless personal commitment Curtis visited 80 American Indian tribes from the Mexican border to the Bering Strait, gaining their confidence through his patience and sensitivity. His work was printed in 20 volumes between 1907 and 1930 as The North American Indian, but with only 272 copies, originals became extremely rare.

This book gathers Curtis’s entire American Indian portfolio into one publication, offering renewed access to and appreciation of his extraordinary achievement, which is as much a precious historical document as a triumph of the photographic form.

For over thirty years, photographer Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868–1952) traveled the length and breadth of North America, seeking to record in words and images the traditional life of its vanishing indigenous inhabitants. Like a man possessed, he strove to realize his life’s work, which culminated in the publication of his encyclopedic work The North American Indian. In the end, this monumental work comprised twenty portfolios and twenty text volumes with over 2,000 illustrations.

Unexpectedly exciting

Paraskevas,27 ottobre 2021
This volume really captivated a living history. It was interesting to see all these photos of people of a long forgotten age and a way of life that could resonate solid teachings to our contemporary ways. Reading it also helped me develop my photography and read a lot more about the ways and legends of the native Americans
