About This Image
Ed, the subject, is Native American—specifically a member of the Navajo Nation. His faraway gaze, and the unnaturally bright red sky behind him, add not only a sense of pride, but a near-ominous, enigmatic quality to the piece. Hand coloring was added during the process of making the image, which resulted in a rich Cibachrome that juxtaposes the strengths of both b&w and color.
Printed by the artist and signed on verso.
Another print of this image is in the collection of the NY Public Library.
