The River They Saw

OPB | Jan. 4, 2011 8 p.m.

The beauty and magic of the Columbia River Gorge has attracted photographers for more than 150 years.  The River They Saw chronicles 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.
