Drawing Shadows to Stone
The Photography of the Jesup North Pacific Expedition, 1897-1902
Edited by Laurel Kendall, Barbara Mathé, and Thomas Ross Miller with Stanley A. Freed, Ruth S. Freed, and Laila Williamson
The men and women of the 1897 Jesup North Pacific Expedition to Alaska and Siberia used the camera to record what they believed to be vanishing cultures. This book examines how early anthropologists used photographs as cultural and biological data, as documentation of places, events, and artifacts, and as models for future exhibits. A gallery of 60 photographs follows a brief history of the Jesup Expedition and an illustrated essay on the making and interpretation of these images. Pub. with American Museum of Natural History
1997. 112 pp., 83 photos, notes, bibliog., index, 9 x 10
0-295-97647-0 Paper, $22.50
