The Great Central Valley
Kolligian East Floor 2 (Library Administrative Offices), Floor 3
In 1982, photographers Stephen Johnson and Robert Dawson set out to photograph the region where they grew up: the heartland of California. Their photographs, alongside historical images by Carleton Watkins, Dorothea Lange, and others, examine such themes as water, agriculture,oil, and industrialization to depict the historical significance, productivity, and transformation of the region. Originally presented at the California Academy of Sciences, the exhibit is on long-term loan to UC Merced.
