John C. H. Grabill: Photographs of Wounded Knee and the Dakota Territories, 1886-1892
John C. H. Grabill: Photographs of Wounded Knee and the Dakota Territories, 1886-1892 at Andrew Smith Gallery. "...Very little is known about John C. H. Grabill. His photographs taken in the aftermath of the massacre of Wounded Knee in January 1891, show powerful composition and a mastery of technic equal to the greatest of the frontier photographers.
He opened his first photographic studio in Sturgis, Dakota Territory in 1886, with studios in Hot Springs, Lead and Deadwood, Dakota Territory through 1891. He then moved to Chicago and operated a studio until 1894, at which point no other information about Grabill is available."
