  • Scope and Content: This collection consists of the work of photographer George Bunzl. The photographs are largely portraits of indigenous peoples in their native dress, shown in the context of their daily activities as encountered by Mr. Bunzl on his travels throughout the world. Other photographs are village and market scenes, some architectural details (including an Incan stone masonry wall), still lifes, and a number of landscapes. Much of Mr. Bunzl's earlier work consisted of Alpine landscapes and snow scenes. His later works were taken in various countries of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and North, Central, and South America. Many of his photographs made in Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Peru are included in his book THE FACE OF THE SUN KINGDOMS (1966). This book and a complete set of 35mm contact prints serve as visual finding aids to the collection and are located in Box 1 of the collection. There are notations in the book giving accession numbers for photographs included in this collection.
