ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
Monsen was one of several photographers operating at the turn of the century in this part of America, alongside his more famous contemporary Edward S. Curtis. Walpi ('Place of the Notch') is a Hopi village in what is now Arizona that has been continuously inhabited for over a thousand years. Pictured is Kauowena, who according to the caption was the oldest woman in Walpi–the unnamed child is separated by four generations. As ever, traditional dress is difficult to research but the distinct twill pattern on the child is very similar to the Pusal'hoya, a baby boy's blanket. I sampled the building plaster from contemporary colour photographs of the village. – Jordan J. Lloyd
