The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation has named “Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs” the photography book of the year. It’s the UK’s top award for photography books.

Huntington curator Jennifer Watts was my guest on Episode Eight of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. The Huntington has the second largest Watkins collection in the world. Watts’s essays in the book (and our conversation on The MAN Podcast) spotlight two of Watkins’s less-celebrated — and best — series: his California missions photographs and his pictures of southern California and Kern County.
