by Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery
Publisher's Description
"The Great Wide Open focuses on concepts of the 'panoramic', or the wide-angle view, tracing how this specific form of visual representation amplified the idea of the American West as a supposedly virgin and sparsely populated land of endless resources, and an ideal landscape for American enterprise."--the publisher. This study brings together historical and contemporary panoramic photographs, drawing attention to numerous topics, not the least of which is the mythologization of the American Dream.
