Glass Plates and Wooden Boats
For forty years during the heyday of American yachting, photographer Willard B. Jackson set out each summer in pursuit of his single project: photographing any significant vessel that appeared in the North Shore waters. From his custom motorboat
, he captured the many facets of yachting life on large glass plate negatives. Author and Wooden Boat editor Matthew P. Murphy provides the definitive publication on Jackson's work, often drawing from PEM's own extensive archives of the photographer’s prints.
