Image courtesy of: California State Library   (Accession Number 188)
Photographers number:110
Title:The Grizzly Giant with a Group of Hunters at the Foot of the Tree, Mariposa Grove, Yosemite
Date Photographed: 1865-1866
Catalog:Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs, cat. no. 102
Notes:CMP notes: Exhibited at 1867 Paris Expo; Exhibited at 1868 MI Fair; Exhibited at 1869 MI Fair. Watkins is distinguished by pairs of pictures made at the same location. Some of these were made in succession a few minutes or hours apart with some elements subtly changed (see cat. no. 103), while others, such as this, were made on a return visit and show great differences. In the present image the camera was several meters closer to the tree and positioned at a more upward-facing angle than it was in cat. no. 101, made about five years earlier.

Photographer:Carleton E Watkins   (Nov 11, 1829 — Jun 23, 1916;  Active approx. 1853 — 1896)

  • Before creating a new tag check for a similar or equivalent tag.
  • Avoid long tag names. Use a single word or as few words as possible.
  • Don't use abbreviations or contractions.
  • In general tags should be singular rather than plural (tree, not trees, etc.).
  • Spell out street numbers (First Street rather than 1st Street).
  • If the text of a tag needs to be edited after it's created send an email request to information@carletonwatkins.org.
