A former curator at Banff's Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Edward Cavell has pored through hundreds of thousands of photographs in archives, museums and private collections across Canada and abroad. The striking black-and-white First Nations portraits in this collection chronicle a voyage through Canada's cultural past. Selected for their aesthetic value as well as their historical interest, these photographs provide a unique visual portrait of Canada's early days.
