In the early 1900s, Bozeman photographer Albert Schlechten set out to create a series of landscape photographs that expressed his love of Southwest Montana and Yellowstone National Park. Light on the Land: The Photographs of Albert Schlechten is an exhibition presenting a dramatic and beautiful natural world through the lens of Albert’s camera.
Developed from a collection of over 175 11" x 14" original glass plates in the Museum’s Photo Archive collections, the exhibition features a selection of 40 images spanning a period of over 30 years by one of Montana’s best landscape photographers.
This exhibit was curated by MOR's Curator of Art and Photography Steve Jackson and MOR Exhibitions.
