This is the story of my first major commission and book, THE HUDSON RIVER AND THE HIGHLANDS (Aperture, 1985). In 1984, #StephenShore, #WilliamClift, and I received a 2-year commission from the Lila Acheson Wallace Fund to photograph the #HudsonRiverValley. This blog tells the tale of the book, with many photos not seen before. Enjoy!

HUDSON RIVER #175: Like most mountain ranges, the #Catskills support a diverse lake system. As a last tribute to this interesting part of the #HudsonRiverValley before continuing our journey upriver, I thought I would leave you with the ultimate rendering of a Catskill lake. Along with #ThomasCole, #FredericEdwinChurch is considered one of the most important painters in the #HudsonRiverSchool. In the post next week I will show you a winter view from his home #Olana, which sits across the river and has a view of the range. Here, however, is a very different perspective, Church’s stunning, “Twilight in the Wilderness.” HEY, PHOTOGRAPHERS! Did he get this right?
