Forgotten Horizons: National Parks in Nevada and New Mexico commemorates the National Park Service's (NPS) Centennial Anniversary. The stunning black-and-white photographs document the NPS's efforts to preserve and celebrate the cultural and environmental resources of its parks, making them accessible to future generations. The project also visually focuses on the importance of water--from early civilizations and explorers of the American Southwest to current residents and visitors.
Artist Cody S. Brothers photographed six national parks in Nevada and New Mexico during a one-year period to capture the sites in different seasons. The project showcases the parks while focusing on the importance of water as a natural resource and how it influenced earlier civilizations to settle in those places they came to call home. More importantly, the exhibit reinforces the beauty of the National Park System and strives to encourage greater public engagement.
Exhibit sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Park Service.
