EDWARD CURTIS: RE-IMAGINED

My most recent project, Edward Curtis: Re-Imagined, consists of a series of photographs that depict present-day indigenous people in a style that mirrors American photographer Edward S. Curtis’s late 19th century/early 20th century photos of Native American people. I have re-imagined Curtis’s photography by exploring some of the ways he may have photographed contemporary indigenous people if he were still alive today. I have produced a series of photographs of contemporary indigenous people and have juxtaposed them with some of Curtis’s most famous photographs—namely, photographs from his The North American Indian collection. My subjects include educators, writers, students, and powwow dancers. All my subjects are of Native American descent.
