My friend, David Leland Hyde, recently worked on this short video about his father, Philip Hyde, that is worth watching and sharing.

Philip Hyde was essentially the photographer that spurred the modern environmental movement through his work with the Sierra Club starting in the 1950’s. More so than even his contemporaries, Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter, Philip Hyde photographed solely for environmental conservation issues which ended up saving the Grand Canyon from damming, Dinosaur National Monument, Point Reyes National Seashore, the Redwoods and other environmentally-sensitive locations.

  1. Hi Richard, Thanks again for sharing this video and helping to get the word out about Dad’s work. He would have been shocked, amazed and once he got used to the idea, happy to see his photographs shown around the world.
