Wild Beauty: Photographs of the Columbia River Gorge, 1867-1957
OCT 4, 2008 – JAN 11, 2009
From rock formations to waterfalls, vast curves and bends to massive mountain views, the Columbia River Gorge’s beauty has been an inspiration to professional and amateur photographers alike for nearly 150 years. The images in Wild Beauty, a 90-year photographic survey of the Columbia River Gorge, comprise some of the most striking and poignant pictures taken of the area from 1867 to 1957.
The exhibition, consisting of more than 200 photographs, is a historical journey through unique geography, advancing technology, and abundant talent, chronicling the beauty and changing character of this dramatic passage of river.
