by Greta Pratt
Greta Pratt's extraordinary photographs give us glimpses of people and places that stimulate us to think about our history, not only of the great American West, but of the nation itself. Her point of view is delightfully antic and provocative. We want not only to enjoy the moment of our viewing, but also to study and ponder each photograph, challenged to find its larger meaning.Howard Zinn
Using History takes us on a tour of American’s celebrating their past. From Civil War battle re-enactments to Abraham Lincoln impersonators to colossal buffalo and Indians, Greta Pratt’s vivid, humorous, color photographs examine how historic iconography is used and challenge us to question who Americans are.
