Yosemite in time : ice ages, tree clocks, ghost rivers by Mark Klett( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yosemite is a world-famous location that has attracted famous photographers such as Eadward Muybridge, Edward Weston, and Ansel Adams, environmental organizations, rock climbers, and tourists. This book puts the park in a new light, with rephotography of some of the most enduring photos taken at Yosemite and three essays by noted critic Rebecca Solnit. The photographs and essays reconsider the iconic status of Yosemite in America's conception of wilderness, questioning how the park was defined by its first visitors and offering new ideas for an America--and a park--that has changed dramatically since tourists first set foot in Yosemite Valley. Jarring and insightful, this is an intimate reconsideration of a park that millions of people hold dear.--From publisher description

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using landscape photography to reflect on broader notions of culture, the passage of time, and the construction of perception, photographers Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe spent five years exploring the Grand Canyon for their most recent project, Reconstructing the View. The team's landscape photographs are based on the practice of rephotography, in which they identify sites of historic photographs and make new photographs of those precise locations
Drowned river : the death & rebirth of Glen Canyon on the Colorado by Mark Klett( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1963 the waters began rising behind Glen Canyon Dam and 170 miles of the Colorado River slowly disappeared. Environmentalists considered it a disaster and mourned Glen Canyon as gone forever. The Sierra Club joined forces with photographer Eliot Porter to document what would be lost under the dam's waters. But in an unexpected victory that speaks to the pervasive disaster of climate change, the reservoir is now declining and the Colorado River is coming back. Photographers Byron Wolfe (born 1967) and Mark Klett (born 1952), along with writer Rebecca Solnit (born 1961), spent five years exploring the place as expectations and possibilities changed, and the river reemerged at the upper end of the reservoir

Charting the canyon : a photographic exploration by Mark Klett( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Klett, a Regents' Professor of Art at Arizona State University, and fellow photographer Byron Wolfe have spent three summers locating the sites of historic photographs and artworks of the Grand Canyon and making new photographs at the same locations. These new photographs explore the relationship of the original images to the spaces they depict. The approach is intentionally experimental and playful, but the results are meant to explore the early art of the canyon and how the Grand Canyon landscape became one American art's icons"--Container
Phantom skies & shifting ground : landscape, culture, and rephotography in Eadweard Muybridge's Illustrations of Central America by Byron Wolfe( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1875, after being acquitted for the murder of his wife's lover, Eadweard Muybridge spent a year photographing along the Central American Pacific Coast, particularly in Guatemala and Panamá. Upon his return to California in 1876, he published a very limited number of albums of the photographs (11 are known), each of which was unique in size and scope. In 2007, photographer Byron Wolfe (born 1967) tracked down and cataloged every known Muybridge Central American photograph. Then, with cultural geographer Scott Brady, he traveled to many of Muybridge's sites to rephotograph them. Through photographic collage, interpretive rephotography, illustrations and essays, this book examines an exceptionally rare series by Muybridge. Also included is a catalogue of every known Muybridge Central American picture
