9780813531700: Trading Gazes: Euro-American Women Photographers and Native North Americans, 1880-1940

The story of westering Americans in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries has been told most notably through photographs of American Indians. Unlike this vast archive, produced primarily by male photographers, which depicted American Indians as either vanishing or domesticated, the lesser-known images by the women featured in Trading Gazes provide new ways of seeing the intersecting histories of colonial expansion and indigenous resistance. Four unconventional women-Jane Gay, who documented land allotment to the Nez Perces; Kate Cory, an artist who lived for years in a Hopi community; Grace Nicholson, who purchased cultural items from the Karuk and other northern California tribes; and Mary Schaffer, who traveled among the Stoney and Métis of Alberta, Canada-used cameras to document their cross-cultural encounters.

Trading Gazes reconstructs the rich biographical and historical contexts explaining these women's presence in different Native communities of the North American West. Their photographs not only record the unprecedented opportunities available for Euro-American women eager to shed gender restrictions, but also reveal how women's newfound mobility depended on the increasing restrictions placed on Native Americans in this era. By tracing the complex, often unexpected relationships forged between these women, their cameras, and the Native subjects of their photographs, Trading Gazes offers a new focus for recovering women's histories in the West while bringing attention to the complicated legacies of these images for Native and non-Native viewers.

Book Description Rutgers University Press, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. A vast archive of photographs of the American West chronicled American expansion and the subordination of many Native peoples. Many of these images either recorded the vanishing Indian or idealized the civilized native. But most of these works, produced by male photographers, obscure a wide range of intricate stories about Anglo-Indian relations in a period when intensified restrictions of Native Americans mobility and economy coincided with the rise of photography as a hobby and profession, as well as unprecedented opportunities for the new woman who was seeking to escape traditional gender constrictions. In Trading Gazes, these histories intersect in the stories of four unconventional women photographers and their subjects, providing readers with rich insights into a network of complex relationships. The essays in Trading Gazes offer historical and biographical contexts for their subjects, showing how each woman used photography in her relations of exchange with the people with whom she lived and worked. The women are: Jane Gay, who documented the allotment of land to the Nez Perce; Kate Cory, who made her home with the Hopi; Grace Nicholson, who worked with the Karuk and other northern California tribes; and Mary Schaffer, who traveled among the Stoney and Metis of Alberta, Canada. The book combines new historical information about turn-of-the-century North America with an unprecedented focus on women photographers in the U.S. and Canadian wests. In addition, the authors discuss how photographs can help us to understand the difficulties of recovering erased tribal pasts. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780813531700
