More than 100 years after Edward Curtis began "Great Warriors," his seminal ethnographic study of North American Indians, German-born, Vancouver-based Eric Klemm continues the project, in homage to Curtis, by photographing as many members of the devastated tribes of North American Indians as he can find. In the images compiled in this volume, we might see Klemm's subjects in Sean Jean T-shirts and jean jackets, carrying antlers or wearing a headdress, beads and face paint. One young man sports a mohawk and a Beatles T-shirt. The diversity reveals the struggle faced by a people who have refused to give up their culture even as it has been increasingly marginalized. Born in 1939, Eric Klemm was affiliated early on with the legendary German youth magazine "Twen" and contributed in the 70s to "Stern," "Zeit Magazin" and German "Playboy."show more
