Emmet Gowin first gained attention in the 1970s with his intimate portraits of his wife, Edith, and her family. Gowin later focused on the American West, taking aerial photographs of places that had been changed by humans or nature, including the Hanford Site, Mount St. Helens, and the Nevada Test Site. Gowin taught at Princeton University for more than 35 years.
