9783822819814: Curtis (Midsize)

For over thirty years, photographer Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868-1952) traveled the length and breadth of North America, seeking to record in words and images the traditional life of its vanishing indigenous inhabitants. Like a man possessed, he strove to realize his life's work, which culminated in the publication of his encyclopedia ""The North American Indian."" In the end, this monumental work comprised twenty textual volumes and twenty portfolios with over 2000 illustrations. No other photographer has created a larger oeuvre on this theme, and it is Curtis, more than any other, who has crucially molded our conception of Native Americans. This book shows the photographer's most impressive pictures and vividly details his journey through life, which led him not only into the prairies but also into the film studios of Hollywood.

Book Description Taschen, Italia, 2004. Rústica. Book Condition: Nuevo. 1ª Edición. 20 x 25 x 2. D50672KOLN Durante más de treinta años, el fotógrafo Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868-1952) viajó a lo largo y lo ancho de América del Norte, buscando registrar en palabras e imágenes la vida tradicional de sus habitantes indígenas, en vías de desaparición. Como un hombre poseído, se esforzó por realizar la obra de su vida, que culminó en la publicación de su enciclopedia "El indio norteamericano". Al final, esta obra monumental comprendía veinte volúmenes de texto y veinte álbumes con más de 2.000 imágenes. Ningún otro fotógrafo ha creado un corpus tan amplio de este tema, y es Curtis, más que cualquier otro, quien ha moldeado crucialmente nuestra concepción de los nativos norteamericanos. Este libro muestra las imágenes más impresionantes del fotógrafo y detalla elocuentemente su viaje por la vida, que lo llevó no sólo a las grandes praderas, sino también a los estudios de cine de Hollywood. 240 Págs. 950 gramos.
