Alturas Foundation selected artist Laura McPhee as its initial Artist-in-Residence in 2003. Ms. McPhee worked during the next two years in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho, capturing images that address Americans' conflicting ideas about landscape and land use, and our values about our relationship to the natural world. From May through September 2006, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, featured her Idaho work in "River of No Return", an exhibition of forty 6' X 8' contemporary photographs from more than eighty she created during her Alturas residency. Recently, Yale University Press published a collection of the Idaho images also entitled River of No Return, which features an introduction by poet laureate Robert Haas.
