Lauren's Questions

Question #1

Throughout the article "Representing the Other: The North American Indian" and the video The Indian Picture Opera: A Vanishing Race there are many instances of a romanticized view of the American Indian. Even though both of these articles were written and made decades ago discuss how and why these images still exist today. (ex. Halloween Costumes such as "Indian Brave" or "Indian Princess")

Question #2

In the article, "The Parallel Histories of Anthropology and Photography", Pinney states, "The objects of photography can be easily and repeatedly substituted for the objects of discipline" how is this shown throughout the video The Indian Picture Opera: A Vanishing Race?
