Native American Portraits

I was inspired to create these portraits from the work of American Photographer, Edward S. Curtis. Curtis was an American Photographer working in the early part of the 20th century. His photography, both beautiful and evocative documented the Native Americans. In his photographic work, Curtis aspired to capture a visual record of what was left of the Indigenous Native American culture before it was eroded irrevocably.
