In Conversation with Tyler Green: "Carleton Watkins: Making the West American"

Tyler Green speaks about his new book, Carleton Watkins: Making the West American. Join us for a discussion between Tyler Green and ICW Director Bill Deverell about Tyler’s magisterial new biography of the great landscape photographer Carleton Watkins. Our discussion will range broadly across such topics as the West and the Civil War, the rise of Yosemite and the National Park idea, and the fascinating life of arguably the greatest photographer in all of American history. The Huntington is home to one of the world’s most important collections of Watkins photography, and Tyler Green will discuss his research and writing drawn from that archive.
