American frontiers : the photographs of Timothy H. O'Sullivan, 1867-1874 by Joel Snyder( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the first photographers to cross the American frontier, Timothy H. O'Sullivan met the challenge of the West's grandeur and mystery by creating landscapes of compelling subtlety and original vision. From 1867 to 1874, as photographer to the King and Wheeler geological surveys, O'Sullivan traveled thousands of miles, from San Francisco to Colorado, from the Arizona Indian territory to Idaho's Snake River. He made more than one thousand photographs in the field, ranging from scenes of the deserts of Nevada and California, the heights of the Humboldt Mountains, and torrential waters of Shoshone Falls to pictures taken inside mines illuminated by magnesium flares. O'Sullivan's western photographs represent not only an explorer's first encounter with a startling new terrain, but also an artist's vision of the power of Nature, at once threatening and awesome ... American Frontiers includes more than 80 photographs, many of them published here for the first time. Other O'Sullivan negatives, never printed in the photographer's lifetime, are represented in prints made especially for this book at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. by the original albumen process. In Joel Snyder's insightful text reveals new research that sheds light on this little known but important figure and relates O'Sullivan's work to theories of esthetics and American culture of the nineteenth century"--Jacket flap

Timothy H. O'Sullivan : the King Survey photographs by Keith F Davis( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Clarence King's Survey, undertaken between 1867 and 1872, covered a vast swath of terrain, from the border of California eastward to the edge of the Great Plains. It was the first survey to include a full-time photographer--Timothy O'Sullivan--who produced about 450 finished photographs in large-format and smaller-format stereographs. O'Sullivan's images convey a distinct individual quality of perception, at once direct and laconic, as well as a perfect union of objective fact and personal interpretation. As such, O'Sullivan remains the most admired, studied, and debated photographer who worked on the great western surveys of the 19th century. This handsome and enlightening book aims to enrich and enlarge our understanding of O'Sullivan's pivotal body of western photographs by emphasizing the idea of context. This ambition encompasses several frames of reference: O'Sullivan's best-known images in relation to his larger body of survey work; the function his photographs served in relation to the survey's overall goals and methodologies; and the King Survey itself as a logical part of a complex and prolonged expeditionary endeavor. The volume also includes an essential catalogue raisonné of O'Sullivan's King Survey work."--Publisher's website
