In 1950, Jonathan Wittenberg, student of biochemistry and biophysics, went to live among the Navajo, or Dine, in New Mexico. With a bulky twin-lens reflex camera, Wittenberg was recording a people and their lives from a time that is essentially unrecorded. Navajo Nation 1950 is an incredible historical document that is not only a unique entree to a time and place, but a surprisingly fine art foray by an untrained photographic eye.
