Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Elias Bonine was one of three brothers, all of whom were photographers. Moving to California in 1876, he traveled throughout the state and photographed in remote areas, using his tent as both home and darkroom. He subsequently settled in Lamanda Park, near Pasadena. Bonine was one of the most prolific photographers of Native American portraits in the Cabinet Card format. Unlike the earlier work of government survey photographers or of early anthropologists who used photography as field research, Bonine's images were made for public audience increasingly enthralled by native subjects. His several trips to Arizona in the 1870s and 1880s produced hundreds of portraits of members of the Yuman tribes, including Maricopas.


The Quechan (or Yuma as they were more popularly known) were much photographed by Elias A. Bonine (1843-1916), a photographer from Pasadena, California. Although the Yuma were generally regarded as a peaceful people, they were, when necessary, ferocious in battle.
