High Contrast: The Enduring Paradox of Native Photography

May 12, 2012 | Source: Monroe Gallery of Photography

Via Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

Stark comparisons of the traditional and the modern have informed the visualization of Native Americans from colonization to the present. Early contemporary Native photographer Horace Poolaw (1906–1984) created a dialogue with modernism through his adoption of composite narratives steeped in the cosmopolitan realism of the early 20th century. Lecture by Nancy Mithlo, Assistant Professor, Art History and American Indian Studies Department, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
