Acerca de


This stunning survey of photographers and photography from 1870-1970 captures the American Southwest as it has shaped the lives and work of nineteen photographers, including Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter, Paul Strand, Edward Weston, and Laura Gilpin.

From the Publisher:

This new book is an extraordinary ethnographic work presenting Eskimo tribesman Simon Paneak's detailed drawings of his native culture and lifeways at the point when they began their irreversible clash with twentieth-century modernism. Author Campbell met Paneak while a member of the 1956 Yale North Alaska Expedition. It was then that he encouraged Paneak to document his way of life, one that Campbell knew was verging an extinction. Over a twenty-five year period, Campbell carried out fieldwork in the Alaska Brooks Range, through which Paneak remained an abiding associate. Their friendship allowed Campbell a rare understanding of inland Eskimo culture, which was intact when his studies began and all but extinct by the mid-sixties due to the discovery of oil on the North Slope of Alaska. Paneak's drawings are the only memoir in existence of traditional Nunamiut culture, depicting scenes of the food quest; fur trapping; trade and travel; and other aspects of survival on the North Alaska tundra. This book also includes rare documentary photography by Campbell and other prominent scientists working in Alaska between 1956-85 of the Nunamiut culture, the Alaska landscape, and of expeditions into the tundra. North Alaska Chronicle is an extraordinary documentation of Campbell and Paneak's working friendship and a stunningly detailed view of a lost way of life.
