Curtis' uneasy masterpieces 

In 1906, Seattle photographer Edward Sheriff Curtis was commissioned by financial tycoon J.P. Morgan to photograph the indigenous American tribes, in an effort to capture images of their customs and traditions. So began the North American Indian Project, in which Curtis was given five years to complete a visual record, in folio form, of people who were widely considered to be vanishing.
