Photographer E.S Curtis

Following on from my post about my great experience at the School Of Visual Arts in New York,  I wanted to look at more at Edward Sheriff Curtis's photography work as his interest lies in Tribal Cultures and Masks.  Edward Curtis visited and photographed approximately 80 western Native American tribes between 1890 to 1930.  Below are some of his photographs that I was most drawn to.
