Edward S. Curtis Photographs of Native American Women

Though nearly a century old, Edward S. Curtis' photographs of Native American Women spoke to me - with no words - more understandably than most day to day face to face conversations of the present, or certainly more intelligibly than most clipped, abbreviated texts. I had the opportunity to enjoy Curtis' photographs the last day of their exhibit at Booth Western Art Museum and was so struck by the faces, clothing, surroundings and handiwork of those women of the past - I was inspired to further study them. 

If you have the opportunity to view the exhibit or to see these photos online, do note Curtis' ability - through his photography - to connect people despite the seeming limits of time.
