J. E. Stimson: Photographer of the West
by T. A. Larson
Publisher's Description
Stimson photographed Wyoming and other western states from 1889, when he first set up a studio in Cheyenne, through the middle of the twentieth century. In addition to his work around Cheyenne, he photographed for the Union Pacific Railroad, the Commission on the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, and the Wyoming Immigration Department. His views document the growth of the West in all areas--from its inhabitants and cities, to its agriculture. The rich duotone reproductions from his large format glass and nitrate negatives are surprising in their detail and beauty. This book will guarantee Stimson's place in photohistory as one of America's great regional photographers.
