Explore how photography in the nineteenth century helped bring the natural wonders of America to the attention of the country and the world, in Photographing Nature's Cathedrals, with Ariel Pate, Assistant Curator of Photography.

Nineteenth-century photographers and painters often portrayed the same scenes, and their art forms informed each other’s work. Ariel Pate, assistant curator of photography, and Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art, will give a tour looking at the photographs of Carleton Watkins and Thomas Hill’s Merced River, Yosemite Valley (1896) from the Museum’s permanent collection.
