Description

 John and Coleen Graybill help run the Curtis legacy foundation and their other business Mountain Spirit photo.  John is a direct descendant of Edward Curtis, a photographer from the late 1800’s/early 1900's who famously photographed the native Americans. John’s foundation is key to protecting and showcasing the work of this photographer. 


If you don’t know who he was, then dont worry, keep listening, but in short he took thousands of dry plate photographs over a 30 year period.  Because of his subject matter, it was important work in terms of culture and history.


Please do listen in to this interview, you find will out about how John & Coleen are attempting to photograph the descendants of the original subjects too, using the same techniques (Descendants project).


So stayed tuned to learn about JP Morgan, Teddy Roosevelt, General Custer and how history was re-written.
