The gallery Fraenkel presents an exhibition by Carleton Watkins.
Though made within the first decades of photography’s invention, Watkins’s work, and his perception of the western landscape, remain deeply relevant today. The exhibition includes dramatic views of a still little-known Yosemite Valley, the Columbia River in Oregon, and a near-surreal depiction of Mission San Luis Rey in Southern California, situated in an empty expanse.
