Seneca Ray Stoddard, born in 1843 in Wilton, New York, was a prolific landscape photographer. Throughout his career, he photographed many regions, but some of his best work comes from his travels throughout the Adirondacks. Due to his artful compositions and obvious command over the technical aspects of the medium, his images stand the test of time and are comparable to the works of the Hudson River School and the luminist painters of the mid-to-late 1800s.
