This photograph actually makes me sort of uncomfortable. At first, I noticed the texture from the rocks and the lighting and I thought it was a pile of bodies-from the war. I’m not sure I would have thought the rocks were bodies if I hadn’t seen Timothy O’Sullivan’s other work. Besides being intrigued by my own misconception…I do really appreciate the textured that was captured. I like how the texture peters out and looks softer because of the distance. I can’t imagine what sort of photograph I would have been able to take in 1867… I would like to know more about his camera and his whole process.
