Description

In this collection of over 200 stunning and storied photographs, ranging from daguerreotypes to studio portraits to snapshots, historian Bruce White explores historical images taken of 0jifeve people through 1950 and considers the negotiation that went on between the photographers and the photographed -- and what power the latter wielded. Ultimately, this book tells more about the people in the pictures -- what they were doing on a particular day, how they came to be photographed, how they made use of costumes and props -- than about the photographers who documented, and in some cases doctored, views of Ojibwa life.
