By Penelope Umbrico

Limited Edition of 500. 

This work examines the analog history of photography within the digital torrent that is its current technological manifestation. It is the latest iteration of Umbrico's larger project Moving Mountains, in which the artist rephotographs a selection of canonical masters' photographs of mountains—the oldest and seemingly most stable of subjects—with a variety of the newest smartphone camera apps.


Penelope Umbrico (born in Philadelphia, 1957) graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, and received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York. She has participated extensively in solo and group exhibitions, including at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and PS1 Contemporary Art Center, New York. Umbrico is core faculty in the School of Visual Arts MFA Photography, Video, and Related Media Program. She lives in New York City.
Home also to 23,000 cinema films, five million film stills, one of the most important silent film collections, technical equipment and a library with 40,000 books on photography and film, the George Eastman House is a pilgrimage site for researchers, photographers and collectors from all over the world. This volume curates the most impressive images from the collection in chronological order to offer an incomparable overview of photographic history.
