Photography is about capturing light. I admire Edward Curtis more than I can express. 4 people found this helpful.

Photography is about capturing light. The way light comes to life in these photographs, and dances over and through the subjects, is truly mesmerizing. Edward S. Curtis was undeniably an artist, and he left for his fellow mankind a wonderful gift. We benefit through his sight and likewise, his INsight. With the recognition of what was quickly vanishing, even as he strove to visually preserve it, Curtis dedicated his life to telling a story. One very true and also very sad due to its cessation.

Although certainly he achieved fame, his name is not as well known as it deserves to be. Just about any of his images contained within this collection can be termed a work of art. Each scene or vista is a pathway for the eye and mind to experience. These are unforgettable and deeply enriching. A wonderful beautiful compilation.

An excellent and fascinating account of a very unique person who produced some marvelous work. It caused me to pursue his photographs.

I bought this for a Native American friend and she was delighted. Good combination of essay about the how's and why's of Curtis' photographic quest, with lots of excellent photos.

You have to appreciate the value that Curtis has on recording the disappearing frontier. He was aware that the time was running out on the American Indian. We should all value his photographs on the way Native Americans lived and how they shaped the basic values that we will someday relish.
Very interesting book.
