I took a graphic design class and was given the task of mixing vector and bitmap shapes for a class project. When the project began, I was already experimenting with digital scans and found several books in the university library researching and fascinated with historic images from Texas in the 1800s. I stumbled upon an image by the wild-west photographer, C.S. Fly where he took an image of the Apache Warlord, Geronimo and his followers in 1888. After reaching a deal with the US government (General Nelson A. Miles) to surrender and return to his tribe within a year, Geronimo or Goyathlay (One Who Yawns) and his followers would be dressed in civilian clothes and shipped by box-car to Florida where they would be put to hard labor. Geronimo would never be allowed to return to Arizona and was to remain in exile for the next 23 years until his death in 1909.

In this image, my intention was to capture the moment of Geronimo’s apprehension and the final moments of his freedom.
