This exhibition traces 150 years of Utah landscape photography from the UMFA’s expansive collection. The history of photography in the United States is deeply tied to the American West. From 19th-century survey expeditions to 21st-century environmental activism, western landscapes have been featured as some of the most prominent subjects in American photographic history.
