A 1914 photo illustration of Ishi, the last of the Yahi, from Northern California

Byron Wolfe, Program Director for Photography at Tyler, will be presenting at UCLA as part of a symposium titled A Century Beyond Muir  on Thursday, November 13. The talk will be based on recently published work titled "Some Version of the Same River" found in BOOM: A California Journal. Wolfe’s photographs and the accompanying essay by poet and philosopher Troy Jollimore respond to some iconic 1914 imagery of Ishi “the last Yahi" from Northern California.


Professor Wolfe also recently gave a talk titled "Time, Landscape, and the Construction of Perception" at The National Academy of Sciences as part of an exhibition titled Imagining Deep Time, August 28, 2014 - January 15, 2015, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W. A 20-minute video of that presentation is available for viewing.


Other recent talks include a Distinguished Professor lecture at the Center for Humanities at Temple (CHAT) in conjunction with a current exhibition Reconstructing the View: Visualizing Time, Place, and the Collective Sublime, as well as at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming.
