A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1898 men and women from all over the world converged on Alaska. Gold had been discovered. In the Yukon Territory, all winter long eager gold seekers struggled over the mountain passes connecting Canada with the United States. A small group of photographers chronicled this epic, creating images of men and women laboring through blinding snowstorms over the windswept, ice-covered mountains. One of that group was a young Swedish immigrant by the name of P. E. Larson. Frozen in Silver documents how this man used the recent medium of photography to earn a living as a merchant and tradesman. From the relative tranquility of a Minnesota photographic studio, he moved westward. And, like thousands of others, he made his way to the Klondike Gold Rush, although with camera in hand. In addition to preserving the rich photographic record of the Great Stampede to the Klondike, Larson recorded contemporary Western life and culture, including that of the hard rock mining community of Goldfield, Nevada. Frozen in Silver is a riveting story of one man s trek through a time and place that have been captured on film and now in print. N° de réf. du libraire CBL9780804009997

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In 1898 men and women from all over the world converged on Alaska. Gold had been discovered in the Yukon Territory of Canada. All winter long eager gold seekers struggled over the mountain passes between Canada and the United States. A small group of photographers chronicled this epic, creating images of men and women laboring through blinding snowstorms over the windswept, ice-covered mountains. One of these photographers was a young Swedish immigrant, P. E. Larss. Frozen in Silver tells the story of Larss, who changed his name to Larson in 1904, and how he became a frontier photographer. It documents how photography evolved in the nineteenth century and how Larson used the medium to earn a living as a merchant and tradesman. Photographers were ubiquitous on the frontier. Every community of any size had a town photographer who made portraits and baby and wedding prints - in fact, many towns had several, all working in relative obscurity.
