Photographer's Note

I associate Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest, Cary Grant scrambling across the heads whenever I see the granite Founding Fathers.

The plan to carve the heads of presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and T. Roosevelt in the huge cliff side of Mount Rushmoore, South Dakota, was presented to sculptor Gutzon Borgium in 1924. Between October 4, 1927 and October 31, 1941, 400 workers sculpted the colossal 18 meter high carvings.
