Since childhood, the Wild West associated with vast prairies, for which the jump of the brave the cowboys, firing from the treacherous Indians, then to the saloon to tell friends about their adventures between a couple of glasses of whiskey.
The photographs of Timothy O Sullivan the cowboys no. There is only the enchanting beauty of Utah, Colorado, new Mexico and Idaho.
Timothy O'sullivan (1840-1882) began photographing as a teenager. After the Civil war, O'sullivan has participated in several expeditions to the Wild West, which was organized by the government. He, in fact, had to do advertising photography: his images of the Western lands were needed to attract new settlers.
So the whole world first saw the Wild West, and the work of Timothy O'sullivan entered the history of photography.
