Biographical Note
Biographical Note
Following a career as a chiropractor in Tuscon, Arizona, Gary Auerbach began working as a professional photographer in 1991. Concerned about the long-term permanence of his photographs, Auerbach taught himself the platinum printing process. Starting in 1992, Auerbach began photographing American Indians and published these photos, accompanied by biographical information and questionnaires from his subjects, in We Walk in Beauty.
