Carl E. Moon
in Wilmington, Ohio, he became a photographer, painter, and
illustrator who moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico as a young man
where he operated a photography studio.
Photographing Native Americans in their natural state was the principal aim of Carl E. Moon. He tried to show the Indian as he lived before civilization hampered his freedom, warped his views of life and changed his picturesque customs and mode of dress.
The Photograph "A Navajo Boy" which is in the logo above was taken by Carl Moon in 1904. It's pure simplicity is a perfect representation of what Carl Moon was trying to convey with his work.
The mission and philosophy of this website is to promote appreciation and respect for Native people and their cultural heritage, with emphasis on the traditional cultures of the Indigenous People of the Southwest by exhibiting the work of Carl Moon for the world on the internet.
"About the only thing we have thus far overlooked taking from the Indian is his right to perform his religious rites with their accompanying dances in his own way."
