Overshadowed by the work of Edward S. Curtis, two other frontier photographers, Lloyd Winter and Percy Pond, recorded the Tlingit and Haida Indians between 1893 and 1910. Ethnohistorian Victoria Wyatt of the University of Washington presented their work in a photo book entitled Images from the Inside Passage: An Alaskan Portrait (Seattle: University of Washington Press, in association with the Alaska State Library, 1989). It was published in Canada as Images from the Inside Passage: A Northern Portrait by Winter and Pond (Douglas & McIntyre, 1989). Wyatt is also the author of Shapes of Their Thoughts: Reflections of Culture Contact in Northwest Coast Indian Art (Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1984).
