Krajem devetnaestog vijeka fotograf Timothy O’Sullivan napravio je neke od najboljih fotografija u američkoj historiji. Poslije američkog građanskog rata putovao je sa mnogim ekspedicijama kako bi dokumentovao osvajanje novih teritorija na američkom zapadu. Ekspedicije su bile sastavljene od vojnika, naučnika, umjetnika i fotografa, i zadatak im je bio da otkriju nove prirodne resurse. Zapad koji su tada zatekli ubrzo će se bitno izmijeniti, ostaće samo fotografije da svjedoče o onome što je nekada bilo.
