Date:
circa 1880s
Scope and Contents note:
Photographs documenting Peruvian Indians, including Campa, Cashivo, Cunivo, and Piro; some images depict their dwellings and weaponry. All or most of the photographs were made by Charles Kroehle and partner George Huebner, and probably collected by William E. Safford during his 1891-1892 expedition to Peru and Bolivia in connection with the World's Columbian Exposition. The photographs are mounted on disbound pages from an album.
Biographical/Historical note:
J. Charles Kroehle (1876-1902) and George Huebner were both German photographers who documented the Amazon region and its people in the late 19th century. Kroehle was primarily an expeditionary photographer and his photographs were published in books on the region, including El Peru Ilustrado (1892). George Huebner arrived in Brazil about 1885 and made pictures in Peru in Iquitos and on the Ucyali river (circa 1888); Huebner opened a studio in Manaus, Brazil in 1898 and in Belem in 1906.
