[Yosemite National Park, California]

Carleton E. Watkins American

Not on view

This exceptionally rare untitled album features seventy-three circular-format views made seventeen years after Watkins first photographed at Mariposa Grove and Yosemite. Half of the photographs are studies of the great sequoia trees in Calaveras Grove, the other half are landscapes of Yosemite. Watkins used a stereo camera with oversize plates then masked the negatives during the printing process.
