Curtis Canon of Chelly/ Galerie Flak Price on request
This is one of the most iconic photographs by Edward Curtis.
here is Curtis caption :
A wonderfully scenic spot is this in northeastern Arizona, in the heart of the Navaho country - one of their strongholds, in fact.
Cañon de Chelly exhibits evidences of having been occupied by a considerable number of people in former times, as in every niche at every side are seen the cliff perched
ruins of former villages.
