Klett is widely known for his rephotography of historic American Western sites first visited by early photographic greats Timothy O’Sullivan, William Henry Jackson, Eadweard Muybridge and Edward Weston. On Photography, Time and Change includes panoramic landscapes, multimedia interactive field recordings, urban diptychs and a series of studies measuring time-all work produced in the last five to six years on themes of time, space and landscape that Klett has developed over his career.

Klett has been photographing the intersection of landscapes, cultures and time for 25 years. He is the author of 12 books and is Regents’ Professor of Art at Arizona State University in Tempe.
