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.
