Fish Shows was photographed by Edward S. Curtis in 1908. He was born in 1848 making him about 60 in this image. Born on the Shoshone River near the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming. He is surprisingly healthy looking for a man of 60 in his time especially after starting a life of battle at sixteen. He was on the war path about forty times in his life span, but was not highly honored.

One of Edward S. Curtis’ photographs from his North American Indian project, this piece is printed on Deluxe Japanese Tissue. The vintage original piece is for sale in our Edward S. Curtis Gallery in Aspen Colorado.
