Wright Morris’s essays cover a wide range of subjects and periods: from Eugène Atget’s historical photographs to NASA’s space photographs, Solomon D. Butcher’s portraits of pioneers in the American West, Susan S. S.’s writings and the work of her husband. Butcher’s portraits of pioneers in the American West, the writings of Susan Sontag and Henry James, as well as through his own photographs and writings.
