Fans of Grand Canyon are familiar with the extreme adventure photography of Emery and Ellsworth Kolb. The Kolbs created a lucrative business making movies and taking pictures of tourists along the trail beginning in 1903. From the brothers’ studio perched at the edge of the canyon, Emery publicly showed historic video footage of the Kolbs shooting Colorado River rapids. In celebration of the Grand Canyon National Park Centennial, the Arizona Historical Society proudly presents A Camera and a Canyon: The Photography of the Kolb Brothers to showcase our collection of unique personal artifacts and prints. On exhibit at Pioneer Museum through mid-August 2019.
