The Tlingit encounter with photography.


The Tlingit encounter with photography.

Gmelch, Sharon Bohn.

U. Penn/Museum of Archaeo & Anth


210 pages




Gmelch (anthropology, U. of San Francisco) studies the use, dissemination, and response to photographic images of the Tlingit from the 1860s through the 1920s, resulting from research including 13 North American archives and oral-history interviews from Sitka and other sites with both Tlingit and non-Native participants. Topics include the first photographic images of the Tlingit, images from visiting photographers and tourists, images from residents, images from Elbridge Warren Merrill, and the Tlingit response to photography. Extensive reproductions of the black-and-white photographs are included.
