Zoe Leonard’s You see I am here after all brings together thousands of postcard images of the “great cataract,” Niagra Falls, from the early 1900s through the 1950s. This grand accumulation of viewpoints brings up issues as diverse as human interventions with nature and the function of landscape in inventing American historical narratives, as well as the technological evolution of image reproduction and dissemination.

Lynne Cooke is curator at Dia Art Foundation and chief curator at the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid. Angela L. Miller is professor of art history at Washington University in St. Louis. Ann Reynolds is associate professor in the department of art and art history and the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.
