The Adirondacks then & now featuring photography of Seneca Ray Stoddard & Mark Bowie
In Stoddards Footsteps
In a career spanning the settling of the Adirondack wilderness, the heyday of the guide, the steamship, and the grand hotel, pioneer photographer Seneca Ray Stoddard produced thousands of images of the evolving landscape-the most comprehensive photo-documentary record of late nineteenthy century life in the region.
More than a century after Stoddard focused his cameras on the region, renowned Adirondack photographer and writer Mark Bowie literally followed in his footsteps, faithfully rephotographing the exact locations of some of his classic images, revealing changes in the landscape and its people over the last one hundred to one hundred twenty-five years. It is a fascinationg study, the results sometimes surprising, in every case, illuminating. Paperback. 11′ x 8.5′
