Edward S Curtis Sampler (part 1)

Edward Curtis, produced many thousands of photographs during his epic chronicling of the faces, culture and homes of Native Americans of the Western United States. You can find the wikipedia article about his life here. This is what he looked like (as always, click the pic for larger size):
