Commercially introduced in 1839, practical photography was a cumbersome process requiring loads of equipment and lots of time. And while the tools and chemicals necessary to create photographic images were bulky and caustic, they were hauled through some of the most unforgiving environments in America to create the first portraits and landscapes of the American West.
From Edward Curtis to Ansel Adams, these extremely dedicated photographers of the past documented and paid tribute to the West through their amazing photos.
And for our participating Click artists, recording the West and capturing images of its diverse people, places and wildlife still hold the same magic and fascination it did for their predecessors some 150 years ago.
