Description

Over 100 years ago Frank Bennett Fiske (1883-1952) photographed members of the Standing Rock Native American community at Fort Yates, North Dakota, where he was born. The men and women he portrayed were his friends and neighbours who were living on the reservation. These images, created with a large studio camera on glass negatives, are notable for their depth and clarity. The negatives were recently rediscovered, and have rarely been displayed. Photographer and graphic designer Murray Lemley, also from North Dakota, curated this selection of images to introduce Fiske’s work to the wider public. They are published here in an attractively-priced gift edition.

Description

The Standing Rock Sioux of Fort Yates in the west of North Dakota have been frequently in the news recently because of the demonstrations against the oil pipeline that crosses their land. Over 100 years ago Frank Bennett Fiske (1883-1952) photographed members of the Standing Rock people in his studio in his birth place Fort Yates. The men and women he portrayed were his friends and neighbours: Native Americans living in the reservation. With a big studio camera he made photos that have a tremendous depth on glass negatives that have seldom been shown to the public. Now for the first time these photos are published in a book. Photographer and graphic designer Murray Lemley, also from North Dakota, made a selection of the images for this world premiere of Fiske’s work.
