Every time I click images of vanishing tribes the motivating idea that drives me is that in a small way I am capturing history as it passes. There is a sense of inflated self-importance momentarily. \nToday after getting exposed to Edward Curtis\u2019s work, at the Mc Cord museum, Montreal, I realise how silly my ideas were and how insignificant my little body of work is. \nThis man is a Giant \u2013 and his life\u2019s work is an epic story. A perfect role model.\nHe roamed the 21 first nations of North America in the early 1900s and photographed the vanishing aboriginal tribes over years. His work \u2013 photos and documentation was published as a work of 20 volumes! \nA remarkable effort!!! \n I finally have a role model to follow!!!\nWill post more about him once I am back on a laptop.\njm\nAug 2012\n\nThe post Epic Photographer \u2013 Edward Curtis, an extraordinary life appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
