Landscapes.

Grant, Casa Blanca, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, 1940


Landscapes for the People shares the story of George Alexander Grant, first staff, and later first chief, photographer of the National Park Service. During his 25 year career (1922, 1929-54), Grant traveled over 140,000 miles and produced more than 30,000 images for the Park Service. Millions of people saw his photographs in magazines, newspaper articles, museum exhibits, and park materials, but few outside the agency ever knew his name as nearly all of his photographs were credited, simply, "National Park Service."
