The Crow or Apsaalooke Tribe of Southern Montana Collection

back to gallery

The first part of this collection presents some of the landscapes on the Crow Reservation followed by a group of photos taken during activities at the 2006 Crow Fair (mostly Crow Fair Parade photos). Next are photos taken during activities at the 2011 Crow Fair, mostly during a late afternoon Pow wow.

More intimate, personal and candid photograph of the Crow, or Apsa\'alooke, during their everyday lives will be uploaded at a later date.

I am currently working to produce a large documentary project called "Crow Tribal Photographs, Then & Now," which will consist of everyday photographs of the lives of the Apsa'alooke as they live on their Southern Montana Reservation. The project will then incorporate photographs taken of the Crow living on their reservation in the early 1900's with contemporary Crow images taken by various tribal members and by myself.

More photos will be uploaded here as the project begins and proceeds.

Photos in this collection are available for purchase as FRAMED ART or for use as a STOCK PHOTO. I will have to receive an OK from any recognizable people in any Crow Photo before finalizing either kind of sale.

For a framed print, please see the price lists and other info on the Ordering Page and then contact me to arrange a purchase. For a Stock sale, please contact me and we’ll discuss terms and make arrangements. Thanks!
