Stopping Time: A Rephotographic Survey of Lake Tahoe
by Peter Goin
Publisher's Description
"Starting with nineteenth-century photographs, the authors have provided over fifty pairs of comparative photographs representing a visual document fo the evolving landscape within the Tahoe basin. Stopping Time confronts issues that have come to the fore in the late twentieth century--how we use the land, how we perceive the landscape, and what our perception means for the future."--the publisher. "The Lake Tahoe landscape is not `natural' in the traditional definition of the word; it is clearly and dramatically affected by the human presence. The evolution of this modified `landscape as architecture' is the subject of this rephotographic survey."--Peter Goin.
