El salvaje Oeste en el siglo XIX



El Salvaje Oeste, fue en lugar cómo Hollywood ha imaginado y ésto se revela en esta extraordinaria colección de imágenes. Las fotografías, tomadas en el siglo XIX en los alrededores de la ciudad de Deadwood, una población minera rica en oro, proporciona una visión única del Salvaje Oeste.

Entre los años 1887 y 1892 el fotografo John C.H. Grabill realizo una serie de 188 fotografias relacionadas con el salvaje oeste. Se encargo de fotografiar la dura vida en aquella zona y la relacion de los colonos blancos con los nativos americanos.

Las imágenes fueron publicadas en periódicos americanos esta semana, después de ser liberadas de derechos de autor por la Biblioteca del Congreso de EE.UU.
