‘Curtis Revisited’ is based on pictures of Indians by Edward S. Curtis
shot in the early 1900s and which are in the public domain.
The images were transformed by adding elements of modernity.
Quotes and personal reflections were added to the images to create an invitation
for the viewer to reflect, ask questions, and maybe try a different perspective
to look at what happened, at what is still hapening in our society.
“The relationship between the images in each pair, sometimes enigmatic
and at other times of the filial order, reveal narratives on the human condition.” Read the full text by Regis Martin (Museum and Art Gallery Northern Territory).
