Light in the West rediscovers the infancy of photography in the American West through the eyes (and camera lenses) of the extraordinary men who were the first photographers to venture west. The film's narration consists of excerpts from the diaries of Carleton Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge, two artists whose work is on view in The View from Here.
