Messages from the Wilderness

Philip Hyde

This video was produced in conjunction with the exhibition Messages from the Wilderness which featured work deploying the visual power of photography to communicate an understanding and appreciation of the great American wilderness. Included in the exhibition was photography by: Philip Hyde, Ansel Adams, Edna Bullock, Peter Essick, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Tom Murphy, Bradford Washburn, Edward Weston & Brett Weston. Their work has often provided the foundation for major conservation movements.

Philip Hyde, was one of the century’s most influential wilderness photographers. His photographs have helped protect such national treasures as the Grand Canyon, Dinosaur National Monument, Denali, Tongass National Forest, Canyonlands, the Coast Redwoods, Point Reyes, King’s Canyon, the North Cascades, Oregon Cascades, High Sierra Wilderness, and many others. The video is narrated by his son David Hyde.
