Curtis's Work Tentt

The roombox was created to museum standards. All of the Sioux Indian artifacts within the box are accurate, the miniature of Curtis’s camera was created by an artisan in England from information and photographs from the Smithsonian. The cyanotypes that I used in the box were actually created by me using the cyanotype process with help from Jane Alden Stevens, a DAAP professor emeritus in the photographic department. All of the lights inside the box are LEDs.
