    Book details


This is a stunning photographic journey around the great Yosemite Valley, following in the footsteps of one of its first surveyors. Carleton Eugene Watkins (1829-1916) was one of the most highly acclaimed early western photographers, and one of the first to photograph the natural beauty of Yosemite. It was partly due to Watkins' photographs that President Lincoln declared Yosemite Valley inviolable, leading to the creation of the America's National Parks system. 'Carleton Watkins in Yosemite' is a lavishly illustrated volume that takes readers on a stunning tour through Yosemite Valley from the view at Inspiration Point to the panorama high above the valley at Glacier Point - all from the perspective of one of Yosemite's first surveyors. The images reproduced here, all selected from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection, range from groves of giant Sequoia trees and breathtaking waterfalls to the landmarks that best symbolize the natural beauty of the Yosemite Valley.
