Lecture: Sebastian Dobson - John Wilson, Japan and photography

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.

Dear Sebastian,

According to Marianna, in the comments below, you did some important discoveries on the photographs of Antonio Beato? I would be interested on hearing what you found out, if you don't mind, as I am doing a dissertation on him for my final year of studies and I am in need of some help.

I would be very grateful if you accepted to help and to possibly exchange on this privately.

Dear Mr Dobson,
my name is Marianna and I am an Italian researcher. Lately, I am making researches on a photographer of Italian origins called Antonio Beato. Mr Ken Jacobson told me that you made some important discoveries on the 19th century photografher. For this reason, I would like to make you some important questions on him. Would you be, than, so kind of giving me your private contacts so that I could better explain you the subject of my enquiry? If you will accept this, I will be very grateful.
With all my confidence and respect,
kind regards

Dear Sebastian,
I am very pleased to have made contact with you. I should have contacted you earlier as we do share a common interest in the activities of photographers in China. You probably have had some recent discussions with Terry B.
At the moment I am heavily involved in the final stage of an exhibition on an engineer-photographer who was assistant to Benjamin Baker the designer of the Forth Rail Bridge.

As soon as this is over I will be returning to matters Chinese.
