Photographed in 1904, Canyon de Chelly (pronounced “de chay”, after the Navaho “Ta Shay”) was one of the most sacred places for the Navaho and remains so to this day. It is located in Northeastern Arizona in the heart of Navaho country. Of Curtis’ 50,000 negatives this is considered to be one of his ten most important and powerful. The insignificance of man relative to nature is clearly illustrated through the sheer size of enduring cliff formations (over 1,000 feet high) that surround the riders.

The master printmaker and artist, Steven Anderson, created our beautiful contemporary photo-lithographs. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Rockefeller Fellowship.  He has also collaborated with over 100 artists including Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe & William Wegman. His prints have been exhibited in over 2,000 exhibits including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney, The National Gallery, The MET, MOCA & LACMA.
