Preeminent 19th century landscape photographer, Carleton E. Watkins (1829-1916) came to Southern California on two occasions: once in 1877 and again in 1880. These trips enabled Watkins to produce some of the earliest and most resonant images of Los Angeles ever made. In celebration of the publication of Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs, a book that was thirty years in the making, author Weston Naef and contributor Jennifer Watts will discuss Watkins's working method and his imagery in an illustrated presentation.
