I'm excited to announce the publication of my new book, the first extensive exploration of nineteenth–century photography in Washington. Each chapter features intriguing facts, stories, and images that bring to life this rich part of photographic history from the earliest days of the Territory to the start of the twentieth century. 

In addition to tracing the development of Washington photography in a direct chronological timeline, I explore key themes that illuminate the social, economic, and physical aspects of growth in the state as portrayed through 200 rarely-seen photographs. 

This composite view of photography as a mirror of humanity reflects its unique ability to capture an instant in time that may ultimately become timeless.
