FIELD NOTES 2008: tracker


I attempt to perfectly replicate an historical photograph by the legendary outfitter and photographer Bert Riggall from the popular viewpoint located on the Prince of Wales hotel hill in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta. I arrange with his grandson to use the exact camera that Riggall shot this photograph with, the Kodak Panoram No. 1, manufactured around 1905. Some of my process and performance of trying to replicate the photograph with the very same camera that he shot the view with in the early 1900s is recorded here and was uploaded daily so that people could follow my quest.
