After the ruins, 1906 and 2006 : rephotographing the San Francisco earthquake and fire by Mark Klett ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How has San Francisco's urban landscape changed in the hundred years since the earthquake and cataclysmic firestorms that destroyed three-quarters of the city in 1906? For this provocative rephotography project, photographer Klett has gone to the same locations pictured in 45 photographs taken in the days following the 1906 earthquake and fires, and precisely duplicated each photograph's vantage point. The result is a powerful comparison that challenges our preconceptions about time, history, and culture. Features an essay by noted environmental historian Philip Fradkin on the events surrounding and following the 1906 earthquake, which he describes as "the equivalent of an intensive, three-day bombing raid."--Publisher description

Yosemite in time : ice ages, tree clocks, ghost rivers by Mark Klett ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 408 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

Timothy H. O'Sullivan : the King Survey photographs by Keith F Davis ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 181 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 raisonneĢ of O'Sullivan's King Survey work."--Publisher's website

The Black Rock Desert by William L Fox ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Writer and poet William Fox has demonstrated his familiarity with the Great Basin in such books as Mapping the Empty, just as Mark Klett has been documenting the landscape of the American West in his photographic studies. Now these artists turn their combined talents to an appreciation of this desolate corner of North America, where the only change in scenery comes with the shifting patterns of cracks in the earth after seasonal rains." "The Black Rock Desert is an introspective guide to a place so daunting that few dare to venture there alone. For anyone seeking to understand how and why we perceive these deserts the way we do, this book charts the rugged intersection of the American landscape and the human spirit."--BOOK JACKET
