Description:
William Henry Jackson was an American painter, Civil War and geological survey photographer and an explorer famous for his images of the American West. He was a pioneering American landscape photographer. After commencing his career as a photographic retoucher and colourist in 1858, he opened his own studio in Omaha, Nebraska, with his brother in 1862, and made his first portraits of Native Americans. In 1869 he photographed railway construction work for the Union Pacific Railroad Co., then in 1870 he worked as an official photographer for the US Geological and Geographical Survey, accompanying expeditions to Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico.Jackson's technically immaculate landscape photographs, taken with a large-format camera using ‘mammoth’ plates up to 19 710 × 23 35 in, did much to shape the public's visualization of the West, and influenced photographers well into the 20th century, including Ansel Adams.This great Photo CD collection contains 155 William Henry Jackson photographs.
