Victorian landscape photographer Carleton Watkins (1829-1916) described his lifelong project in simple terms: to find “the best spot with the best view.” However, this self-trained but precocious man, who seemed to delight in giving away much of the work he produced, is now considered one of the most gifted American photographers of the 19th century. Perhaps best known for his pictures of the then newly discovered scenic wonder Yosemite, Watkins made thousands of remarkable, sophisticated, and historically important images that provide an unparalleled visual record of the western United States.

“The British Council is extremely grateful to the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain for making the generous loan of this selection of photographs from its premises in Bath. In assembling this exhibition for an extended tour in Yugoslavia and Hungary, we have received the greatest possible help from Lord Christopher Brain, General Manager of the RPS, Professor Margaret Harker, the Honorary Curator and Pamela Roberts, the Collection Librarian, who has dealt with the practical details of assembling the exhibition and our frequent enquiries with endless patience.
This exhibition is, with only a small number of changes, essentially the same as that organised and circulated by the International Exhibitions Foundation in Washington in 1980. The few additions we have made have been specifically chosen with the Yugoslav and Hungarian audience in mind. We are greatly indebted to the Foundation for allowing us to re-use the Introduction written for the first exhibition by Sir Tom Hopkinson.
Sir Tom, who made the original selection of photographs, has himself most kindly modified this introduction to take into account the few changes we have made for the present show.
This collection of photographs owned by the Royal Photographic Society is one of the most important in the world. It is however surprisingly little known even in England and we are therefore particularly pleased to have this opportunity of showing a sample of these riches in Yugoslavia and Hungary at a time when the history of photography–whose roots run deep in this country -is enjoying worldwide popularity and acclaim.”

“Stones in the Road is a poetic and intimate vision of the Andean culture and people of Peru. From 1978 to 1989. Nubar Alexanian photographed the Andean people, from their mountain villages to the shanty-towns of Lima.”
the publisher.

“I believe we, reportage photographers of the human condition, have a moral duty to get as close as we can to the people we photograph and to draw attention to all the dignity in the world, as Nubar Alexanian has managed to do so well in this book. It gave me immense pleasure to see my Latin-American people portrayed with so much tenderness”

The Bauhaus exhibition in Calcutta in 1922 was a unique experience in the international art scene — a meeting of artistic and intellectual affinities.

gar195 BOOKS: Carleton Watkins ‘the Art of Perception’

Carleton Watkins, the Art of Perception
Charleton Watkins 'the Art of Perception'
Douglas R.Nickel Abrams Books, 1999
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art,

Carleton Watkins (1829-1916) travelled from New York State to California as a young man alongside his slightly older family friend Collis Huntington. After some time in the West, Watkins took up a temporary position in a daguerreotypy studio and from that moment had found his calling… he would be a photographer.

Watkins had a mammoth camera made by a cabinetmaker to take 18×22″ glass negatives and headed on the long and arduous trek to Yosemite where he produced mammoth plate photographs that were received with some acclaim. Although, the best of these Yosemite photographs were produced in the 1860s, while in his 30s as a more accomplished expert in the field. He went on to record much of the development of the West Coast including the gold rush and the ever-expanding railroads.”
