Carleton Watkins' Landscape Photos of American West on Display at Stanford
By ROBIN WANDER/Stanford News

A new Cantor Arts Center exhibition of 19th-century landscape photographs is an innovative collaboration reflecting an interdisciplinary approach.

The "Carleton Watkins: Stanford Albums" display includes visualizations that provide dynamic context for the geography and natural history behind the photos.

The new exhibition is on view through Aug. 17, and features 83 original large-format prints from three Watkins albums that are part of Stanford University Libraries'  special collections: Photographs of the Yosemite Valley (1861 and 1865–66), Photographs of the Pacific Coast (1862–76), and Photographs of the Columbia River and Oregon (1867).
