Elaine Altman Evans
Knoxville: McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture, The University of Tennessee, 2000
Exhibition Catalogue (January–July 2000)
An absorbing, well-illustrated story of the exploration and documentation of an endlessly fascinating ancient culture by serious practitioners of two emerging disciplines—Egyptology and photography. William Peck, former curator of ancient arts at the Detroit Institute of Arts, observes, “a story . . . that makes the early ‘discovery’ of Egypt come alive . . . Long after the exhibition, the catalogue will remain a valuable compendium of information on the history of Egyptology, Egyptologists, and Egypto-enthusiasts.”
