Collecting more than 200 stunning photographs in one volume, A Country Called California: Photographs 1850s to 1960s traces the development of the Golden State from the nineteenth century on, through to its emergence as the fifth-largest economy in the world—all as seen through the eyes of photographers whose names are synonymous with fine art photography: Carleton E. Watkins, Dorothea Lange, Eadward Muybridge, Will Connell, Edward Weston, Max Yavno, A.C. Vroman, Mabel Watson, Anne Brigman, and many more. A Country Called California captures the light that has captivated every photographer's eye, in a land so distinct and diverse it could be its own country.
