Online exhibition: the Albumen Gallery currently presents a reportage by Ed Eckstein on the lives of Native Americans. The exhibition, which continues until 15 June 2016, encompasses 38 works taken from the Leica photographer’s ongoing, 40-year-long project.
Eckstein first began to document the lives of Native Americans in 1967. Throughout the decades, his long-term project has taken him across the entire United States, from New Mexico to Alaska. In sensitive images he captures everyday life in Native American reservations (commonly referred to by their inhabitants as ‘the rez’), highlighting social issues without ever compromising his subjects' integrity.
Ed Eckstein began his career in the 1960s, documenting the social upheavals of the era. He continues to photograph on a world-wide basis for clients in the editorial and advertising sectors. In his independent work he places a strong focus on socially relevant themes.
