In 1964 Congress passed the Wilderness Act protecting almost 110 million acres of pristine land from roads, vehicles, permanent structures, logging or mining. The success of this act reflects our growing realization that progress is not necessarily synonymous with human production and the changes we make are not always in our own best interest.
In reaction to the 50th anniversary of this landmark bill, organizations and corporations united to sponsor an exhibition in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Wilderness Forever features juried photography of these wilderness areas throughout the United States. To see these images, knowing these places still exist in their raw beauty is hope itself.
McCall Photographics provided all post production, printing, mounting and framing of both photography as well as information panels. The exhibit is on display until Summer 2015.
