07/08 Academic Decathlon Art Selection #12
Ah, "out west"! It still has a romantic quality about it today. This is a photograph of Canon de Chelle by Timothy H. Sullivan done in 1873. Photography was still an early medium. As cumbersome as it was, people dragged their equipment and developing chemicals along with them to document this still unfolding nation. It was a great way for photographers to promote new American locations to people looking for adventure!
