OGALALA CHILD SIOUX 1908 Copper Plate Beautiful
Item Details
Description
EDWARD S. CURTIS. Ogalala Child, 1907. 7.3x3.8" image on 8.8x4.8" copper plate. Plate date 1908. From Volume 3, Sioux, of The North American Indian. Engraved on plate recto: Ogalala Child / From Copyright Photograph 1907 by E.S. Curtis.

Curtis admired the Indigenous crafts, and many photographs that might be considered fashion style photographs of the time of men or women, boys and girls posing in their finest hand-crafted traditional outfits. Pictorial photographers at that time, like Edward Steichen, made soft focus views of socialites in the finest clothes. Similarly, Curtis made still life arrangements of baskets, pottery, hand tinted views of beaded shirts, moccasins and such like the painters of his time, and like the product photographers in 20th century commercial photography. He had a studio style set he used in the field to control the lighting. He was also a wizard at staging these views outdoors.
