The photographer Sarah Wilson’s grandfather, Dr. John A. Wilson, was a paleontologist whose work took him to some of the most remote and rugged landscapes of the West Texas desert. About a year before he died, he gifted her with three boxes, filled with the Kodachrome slides he’d made during digs throughout the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s, and used during his time as a professor at the University of Texas at Austin.
