Overview


This book blends personal observations on Yosemite with reflections on photography and aesthetics, tourism and public life, and the histories of environmental and social politics. Rebecca Solnit’s linked essays are interwoven with stunning images old and new: the book combines classic pictures by Eadweard Muybridge, Ansel Adams, and Edward Weston with painstakingly re-photographed versions to show the startling changes wrought over time — by nature and humankind. Yosemite in Time paints a multifaceted portrait of a natural treasure that reflects the most compelling issues of our time.

Editorial Reviews

The project concept was simple: Photographers Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe took pictures from the vantage points that Eadweard Muybridge, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and others had used in decades past. Solnit's commentary illuminates the continuity and ravage of time.
