Río: a Photographic Journey Down the Old Río Grande

Sep 16, 2018 09:00 AM to Oct 28, 2018 05:00 PM
A selection of photographs from the book Río by Melissa Savage. The dynamic Río Grande has run through all the valley’s diverse cultures: Puebloan, Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo. Photography arrived in the region at the beginning of the river’s great transformation by trade, industry, and cultivation. In Río Melissa Savage has collected images that document the sweeping history of that transformation—from those of nineteenth-century expeditionary photographer W. H. Jackson to the work of the great twentieth-century chronicler of the river, Laura Gilpin. The photographs are assembled in thematic bundles—river crossings, cultivation, trade, floods, the Mexican insurrection, the Big Bend region, and the estuary where the river at last meets the Gulf of Mexico.
