Carleton E. Watkins:
Yosemite Photographs

Discover the sites and landscapes of Yosemite as seen through the lens of nineteenth-century photographer Carleton E. Watkins. This small exhibition features views of Yosemite icons such as Half Dome, Yosemite Valley, the Merced River, and the redwood tree nicknamed Grizzly Giant. The sheer size of Yosemite’s natural monuments challenged artists, such as Watkins, to create equally large-scale works that reflected the epic scale of the future national park.
