One of America's most notable early photographers, Jackson (1843-1942) counts among his many credits dramatic photographs of Yellowstone that helped convince Congress to purchase it as the first U.S. national park. Unknown to historians was this cache of undistributed chromolithographs, the result of Jackson's collaboration with the Detroit Photographic Company. His black-and-white negatives, featuring urban, rural, and wilderness scenes taken throughout the United States and in parts of Canada, underwent a time-consuming process called Photochrom that resulted in richly colored images. All the images have an idealized "postcard" quality, and many were in fact commissioned by railroads and resorts. Compared with the stark black-and-white Western scenes for which Jackson is known, this genre is appealing but quite different indeed. Hughes outlines Jackson's lengthy career and the Photochrom technique in an introductory essay. Aimed at a popular audience, this heavily illustrated volume will also appeal to those interested in photographia.
