During 1977, Ellen Manchester, Mark Klett, and JoAnn Verberg conceived the rephotographic survey project in which a group of photographers duplicated as nearly as possible, views of the Western landscape made by nineteenth-century photographers. Over a period of three years, using the photographs of O'Sullivan, Jackson, Hillers, Russell, and Gardner, along with government maps and notes, the survey found 120 of the orginal sites. They then made photographs that matched the originals in both angle and light. All 120 matched pairs are included here superbly printed in duotone. The wealth of information that they uncover should delight photographers, artists, documentarians, geologists, environmentalists, aestheticians, and many others for years.
