One of the top photography bloggers writing today recently interviewed David Leland Hyde on his blog: Guy Tal Photography Journal. For a comprehensive journey into the lives of three generations of the Hyde family, the roots of their creativity and their unique impact on the Art of the West, see Guy Tal’s blog post, “Interview With David Leland Hyde.”

This interview provides insight into the concerns of landscape photographers working today, while tying today’s work to the past and the beginnings of the modern environmental movement and photography of the natural scene. The reader discovers a new understanding of how the masters and pioneers of the past paved the way for the accomplishments in landscape photography today.

“Thank you both for this rare and intimate look into one of the greats of American landscape photography.”  –Russ Bishop

“Best interview I’ve read in quite some time. Thank you, both, very much.”  —Scott Bacon

“David:  Excellent ‘interview.’  You really have digested a lot of stuff in the past few years, and you present it well.  You have captured your folks in a good manner and for a few moments they were very present for me.  Nice feeling. Keep the book coming.” —Chris Brown

“Very deep and thorough interview. This is great.”  —Richard Wong

“Thanks for a great interview, Guy–and thanks to David for his candor and willingness to share his thoughts and family history with all of us.”  —Robin Black

“Thanks for a fascinating journey. When my sons and I lived in Indian Valley, we socialized on occasion with the Hydes. I answered affirmatively if anyone asked did I know the Hydes … Reading this has given after-the-fact substance to that affirmation. I’ve done a lot of catching up in this interview.”  –Ron Schmidt

“I still have my copy of Slickrock, purchased back in 1971. The Hyde exhibit at the Camera Obscura gallery in Denver last year was superb. At that time, I was amazed to find that so few photographers recognized Philip’s name. I’m glad to see David’s continuing effort in placing his father’s contributions in context. Excellent interview, Guy.”  –Bill Pelzmann

“Interesting and ironic to read this fine interview just as I’ve returned from speaking at the California University of Pennsylvania, where our photo exhibit “Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography” is on tour from the Smithsonian. Both the exhibit and my book of the same name feature Philip Hyde–and so on Tuesday I was telling hundreds of middle-schoolers from northern Appalachia about Philip Hyde’s commitment to help save the Grand Canyon with pictures. See http://www.stephentrimble.net/projects/lasting-light/ for more info.”  –Stephen Trimble
