Native American Portraits 1865-1935. Palace of the Governors Photo Archives, Santa Fe.
Since 1849, photographers have sought to record the lives of Native American peoples, resulting in important and beautiful historical images. The thirty outstanding photographs presented here were selected from an exhibition at the New Mexico History Museum showcasing work by some of the most prominent photographers of their time. Included are formal ethnographic portraits of visiting dignitaries to Washington, DC, taken after the Civil War by photographers such as Charles M. Bell and A. Zeno Shindler; romanticized images by Edward S. Curtis and Karl Moon; and elegant at-home portraits by T. Harmon Parkhurst and others. Together, they document photographers' changing perceptions of Native Americans over a span of seven decades, from 1865 to 1935.
