Achievements

Photographers Byron Wolfe, Communication Design, and Mark Klett had their book of photographs, Reconstructing the View: The Grand Canyon Photographs of Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe, published by University of California Press, 2012. Klett and Wolfe’s landscape photographs of the Grand Canyon are based on the practice of rephotography, in which they identify sites of historic photographs and make new photographs of those precise locations. Using digital postproduction methods, they bring the original images into dialogue with their own. An electronic version of Wolfe’s 2004 book, Everyday: A Yearlong Photo Diary, was also released for the iPad in October 2012.
