Peter Goin is not just a visual story-teller, but a writer, researcher, scholar, photographer who spends extended time along the byways of Lake Tahoe’s flume trails, peaks, beaches, paths, Desolation lakes, and mostly now, on the water, from where the history of the Lake began. And, yes, Peter is Foundation Professor of Art at the University of Nevada, Reno where he teaches photography and time-based media (known as videography).

Peter is the author of books exploring paradigms of place, including but not limited to Tracing the Line: A Photographic Survey of the Mexican-American Border, Nuclear Landscapes, Nevada Rock Art, and Humanature. Peter’s photographs have been exhibited in more than fifty museums nationally and internationally, and he is the recipient of multiple awards from the National Endowment for the Arts to Nevada Governor’s Millennium Award for Excellence in the Arts.

First off the presses was Stopping Time: A Rephotographic Survey of Lake Tahoe and then Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe Then & Now and then Lake Tahoe A Maritime History.

Next to be published by the University of New Mexico Press is the (working title) The Nature of Lake Tahoe, a more than two-decade-long investigation with coauthor Paul F. Starrs of the history, geography, and evolution of Lake Tahoe’s landscape. Richly illustrated with both historical and contemporary Fine Art photographs, this book will reinterpret the historical narrative of the lake from a visual and geographic vantage point.
