Burnt Forest and Half Dome, Yosemite

Photograph by Richard Misrach, Burnt Forest and Half Dome, Yosemite, 1988. Edition 2 of 3, printed 2006. Richard Misrach’s photo of Half Dome from Glacier Point is taken from an iconic vista, one that many others have shot before. Rather than focus on the beauty of this famous feature, however, Misrach has obscured the face of Half Dome with burnt trees and smoky haze, the product of a recent fire.
