Evocative image from Curtis that shows his mastery of light and shadow that shows a line of people on horseback, represented as dim, faceless forms, moving away from the viewer. One of the most famous Curtis views.

Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952) Edward Sheriff Curtis was a prolific photographer who took over 40,000 images over a three-decade span, that ranged from the Eskimo or Inuit people of the far north to the Hopi people of the Southwest. His importance as a western photographer and documenter of Native Americans cannot be overstated.
