Glen Canyon

Images of a Lost World

Tad Nichols, Photographer

A photographic portrait of the mighty Colorado River through Glen Canyon, in southeastern Utah. In 1963, as the gates closed on Glen Canyon Dam, Lake Powell began to inundate this mysterious setting, but not before two photographers recorded its wonders, Eliot Porter, who made the Glen famous in The Place No One Knew, and Tad Nichols, the man who first led Porter through the canyon.


"The soft, shadowed beauty that [Nichols] recorded in these remarkable black-and-white shots has an ethereal quality, a sense of memory hanging just beyond recall."
