-Idea of Americaness as manifested in US Western landscape: self-reliant, independent.

-Photography as tool to portray rugged identity of West.

-Truth vs. myth of photography, especially in construction of identity.-West as means of lloking back at traditional landscaope e.g. Ansel Adams

-Photographic mutability: As hermetic vehicle, containing essence of object, thus defining our impression of its subject. (How images are recalled in our mind when certain words are said)
