Carleton Watkins (1829-1916)was perhaps the greatest American landscape photographer of the 19th century. His groundbreaking images of Yosemite, the Columbia River, and other natural wonders captured the grandeur of the American West for audiences around the world -- and set an aesthetic standard rivaled only in the work of Ansel Adams many years later.This companion volume to a major traveling exhibition is the most beautiful book on Watkins' work ever published. Produced using state-of-the-art tritone printing, it showcases 105 of the photographer's exquisitely composed images, including four gatefolds presenting Watkins' astonishing panoramic photographs.The texts are reformed by substantial new research into Watkins' life and work, offering a fresh perspective on his achievement.
