Delhi Photo Festival

Felix von der Osten is a documentary photographer from Germany. He is interested in social and cultural issues as well as analog large and medium format photography.

Fort Belknap is the shared homeland to the Gros Ventre and Assiniboine Tribes, who were historically enemies, but were forced to live together.

This project is about the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana, USA. It gives an Impression of the outcome of the 1851 Appropriations Act that forced Native Americans into Reservations, with a focus on how and where they live, as well as their struggle in trying to maintain their centuries old, surviving culture.

My project documents this community and shows a life and circumstances that most people don’t know about.

The project lets the viewer explore a 2,626,415 square kilo-meter area, as it is, with its rich history in the past and present.

The project reflects on the people who live on a Reservation, what they do and how they try to maintain their beautiful centuries-old dying culture in the white world of America.
