Photographing Montana, 1894-1928: The Life and Work of Evelyn Cameron

Sending request ...

Editorial Reviews

The lovely photos reproduced here portray pioneer life in eastern Montana in intimate detail. They are accompanied by a history of the region and the photographer, who arrived in Montana from Great Britain in the fall of 1889 as a 21-year-old bride on her honeymoon. She continued recording events for many years in diaries, letters, and other documents as well as in her pictures. This is a reprint of a work originally published by Knopf in 1990. Oversize: 10.5<">x10<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From The Critics
Evelyn Cameron left her English home to become a rancher in Montana in the late 1800s: she used her photography skills to help support her family, and captured Montana life in the process. Photographing Montana gathers photos which portray early Montana life and deserves a spot in any Montana history collection as well as in art libraries seeking examples of regional photographic talent. Excerpts from her diaries and letters include plenty of autobiographical insights.

    A gem reissued

    I discovered the first edition of this book in April 1992 on a trip to Idaho. There was a photo exhibit in Ketcham featuring Evelyn Cameron's work and I just happened upon it. Besides her remarkable photographs, beautifully reproduced, the book includes the story of Evelyn's amazing life and those of her neighbors. I read it from cover to cover and have gone back and re-viewed the photos many times. A rich experience for anyone interested in art photography (by an amateur!), history, 19th century life in the American West, and the faces and places of an extraordinary time.
