Event Description

Sebastian Dobson will give a lecture at UMass Amherst on a “Singular Man” from Cape Cod who embarked on an arduous journey to Japan in the early 1860s, the tumultuous last years of the Tokugawa shogunate. John Wilson (1816-1868) was a trader and a photographer, whose impact on the birth of Japanese photography was enormous. Dobson will also discuss the transposition into other artistic forms that early photography inspired.

 

This lecture is free and open to the public.
