Interpreting and documenting landscapes has been the province of photojournalists, art historians, writers, filmmakers, and other interested parties since time immemorial. Geographers have contributed much to this endeavor as well, though not nearly as many of them have a presence on the internet. That lacuna is partially filled by the Great Mirror website, created by geographer Bret Wallach, who is also a professor at the University of Oklahoma. On this site, visitors may peruse over 5000 photos taken by Wallach over the past thirty years that show "cultural rather than physical landscapes and are intended to illuminate the people who have shaped these landscapes and are reflected in it." The user interface on the site allows visitors to browse through photographs for various countries, which are often subdivided into smaller divisions (called chapters here), that hone in on a particular locale, such as London within Britain or Kushtia within Bangladesh. Each photograph also features information about its particular subject as well.
