Hickory Nut Falls

My journey with George Masa began in the fall of 2019 with my initial research of early photographers in western North Carolina.  After reading about Masa in William A. Hart, Jr.’s essay (“George Masa – The Best Mountaineer” published in May We All Remember Well, Volume 1) and watching Paul Bonesteel’s film (The Mystery of George Masa), I decided to look for his work.

I immediately realized the difficulty in finding photographs by George Masa.  I decided to locate as many Masa photographs as possible and create a database of his work for anyone to review and study. The focus of the database is solely on his print photography.
