I realize that you probably won’t be able to read all of these articles, but I highly recommend reading the WTJ Mitchell essay. If you are interested in nineteenth century ┬álandscape photography the Joel Snyder essay is a must read. Power and Landscape in its whole is an excellent book! The essay on Pictorial Photography is for all the fans of soft focus.

Suggested readings for Sept 4th:

WTJ Mitchell, Introduction to Landscape and Power and Imperial Landscape

Peter C. Bunnell, Pictorial Photography

Joel Snyder, Territorial Photography from Power and Landscape
