On the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, signed into law Sept. 3, 1964, by President Lyndon Johnson, Wilderness50, Nature’s Best Photography magazine and the Smithsonian Institute asked photographers throughout the nation to define wilderness in pictures—and selected winners are now displayed as large-format prints in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
Epson America Inc., Long Beach, Calif., created the exhibition-quality prints with the 44-inch Epson Stylus® Pro 9900, using the precision Epson MicroPiezo® TFP® printhead and Epson UltraChrome® HDR ink. Epson printed 63 photographs out of the 5,000 entered into the competition, ranging in size from 40-by-60 inches to 13.25-by-20 inches. Images were backed with high-grade acrylic and floating box frames. The exhibit opened Sept. 3 at the nation’s most visited museum, which welcomes more than 8 million visitors annually.
