Art History: Photography and the American West

In the mid-19th century, the American West was undergoing rapid transformation. The construction of railroads was accelerating the expansion of national commerce and western settlement, with disastrous consequences for indigenous cultures. Examine the pivotal role photography played in the reshaping of the West, from the documentation of vanishing ways of life to the iconic landscape photographs that helped spur the establishment of our national parks.
