Photographing the Staircase: A History of Imaging Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
This presentation will examine the history of photographing the region now known as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. It will, moreover, explore how more recent imagery reflects a place, and designation, that is seemingly in flux.
James R. Swensen is an associate professor and curator of art history and the history of photography at Brigham Young University. His research interests include documentary photography, American photography, and the visual representation of the American West.
This event takes place at our headquarters in Escalante, on Thursday, September 16th.
