    Zuni by John K. Hillers - c. 1879-1881

    Print Description

    Zuni - 1879_81 by John K. Hillers (1843–1925).

    John Karl Hillers (1843, Hanover, Germany – 1925) was an American government photographer.

    Hillers came to the United States in 1852. He was a policeman and then a soldier in the American Civil War, first with the New York Naval Brigade,[2] then in the army, he re-enlisted after the war and served with the Western garrisons until 1870. He worked as a teamster in Salt Lake City, when he met John Wesley Powell.

    Originally hired as a boatman for the second Powell expedition down the Colorado River in 1871, Hillers began to replace Walter Clement Powell, John W. Powell's cousin and assistant to the expedition's photographers, first to E.O. Beaman[3] and then to James Fennemore.[4]

    Hillers was Powell's chief expedition photographer on the trip down the Grand Canyon the next year.

    He went on to spend twenty years exploring and photographing the American West, and is known particularly for his portraits of Native Americans.

    Bum-bemsue by Thomas Martin Easterly - March 1847

    Print Description

    Thomas Martin Easterly : Bum-bemsue - frontier portrait of a Sauk (Sac) or Fox chieftain is from a group of eleven daguerreotypes of Sauk or Fox leaders made in March 1847 in St. Louis, Missouri.

    'Collectively, they are believed to be the first photographs of Native Americans in North America, and are among the most impressive and important daguerreian portraits of the era. While many pre 1840s painted likenesses by such masters as Karl Bodmer, Charles Bird King, and George Catlin, offer romantic, often idealized images of Native Americans, Thomas Easterly's daguerreotypes show the sitters as they wished to present themselves, always looking eye to eye at the camera.'
