Yosemite National Park is iconic to American imagery, so it would seem like an impossible task to offer a new and startling photography project of the site. But this is exactly what Jonas Kulikauskas does with his newest book, Yosemite People. Pairing his black-and-white photographs with oral histories from those who live and work at Yosemite, Kulikauskas curates a feeling of intimacy and familiarity to share a view of the park beyond flat depictions of postcard-perfect landscapes.
Yosemite People collects more than a hundred photos taken by Kulikauskas over the two years he dedicated to documenting the people of the park. These photos, beautifully printed, move from the overwhelming majesty of nature to the intimate moments of human life.
On Saturday, September 23rd, we'll be exhibiting a collection of these amazing images from 2:00 p.m. until closing. A reception with the author/photographer including refreshments and a slide presentation begins at 4:00 p.m.
