The image of the American West persists as one of the nation's most enduring cultural symbols, and few photographers have captured more compelling images of the American frontier than Timothy H. O'Sullivan. The work of O'Sullivan, much of whose work is in the collections of the Library of Congress, is presented in "Framing the West: The Survey Photographs of Timothy H. O'Sullivan" (Yale University Press, in association with the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, 2010). This lavishly illustrated volume was the subject of a discussion and signing by three of its authors. The fourth author, Glenn Willumson, was not present.
