A Selection Of Photographic Works By William Henry Jackson.

Below is a small selection of photographic studies by noted American photographer William Henry Jackson. Although primarily famous for his landscape portraiture of the early American west, Jackson also worked for the U.S. government survey, the predecessor to the U.S.G.S., the Union Pacific Railway and the Detroit Publishing Company. It is hoped that this small selection of his works show the range across which he was able to work.
