Book Discussion and Geological and Geographical Survey Photos From 1870s, 1977 and 1997

Sunday March 13 2005 from 4:00 pm until 5:00 pm. This event will be held at Collinsville Library.
Event Description: Byron Wolfe, Holland Hall graduate and professor of photography at University of California State-Chico, will discuss his collaborative book "Third Views, Second Sights: A Rephotographic Survey of the American West." The book presents a fantastic history of geological and geographical sites first photographed in the 1870s and then again in 1977 and 1997. Wolfe, who was a member of the survey photography team in 1997, will discuss the 43 pairings from the third survey, documenting two periods of geological and environmental changes while exploring changing human perceptions of landscape. Wolfe also has a DVD of the project including field notes and video. For more information about the project, click on Wolfe's web site at
This event is for adults.
