The beauty and magic of the Columbia River Gorge has attracted photographers for more than 150 years. In collaboration with the Oregon Historical Society and the Portland Art Museum, Oregon Public Broadcasting is proud to present Oregon Experience: The River They Saw. This one-hour special will chronicle the history of the Gorge with rarely seen images crafted by Carleton Watkins, Sarah Ladd, Benjamin Gifford, Al Monner and many others. These early photographers left a stunning visual legacy through images still considered among the greatest landscape photos ever made.
