American Odyssey


Fashion of the 21st century.
A glimpse into an epic beyond: Majestic color photochroms of American life and landscapes around the turn of the 20th century From the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Rockies to the Tropic of Cancer, the North American landscape is as diverse as it is immense. Lakes as great as seas, forests towering to the sky, windswept plains, sweltering deserts, tumbling waterfalls, marshy swamps, rushing rivers, a legendary canyon... the list of the continents natural features inspires both wonder and awe. This collection of photochroms and Phostint postcards from the private collection of Marc Walter was produced in color by the Detroit Photographic Company between 1888 and 1924. It shows North Americas vast and varied landscape in all its splendor, as well as its peoples, from Native Americans and African Americans to immigrants and the last cowboys or gold rushers. Legendary locales such as Far West saloons, New Yorks and San Franciscos Chinatowns, Coney Island, and Atlantic City complete the panorama of a century ago. Using a photolithographic process that predated the autochrome by nearly 20 years, these images offered people their first glimpses of color photographs. Imbued with a sense of discovery and adventure, they offer an extraordinary voyage through the America of the past.

The African-American Odyssey is a compelling story of agency, survival, struggle and triumph over adversity. The authors highlight what it has meant to be black in America and how African-American history is inseparably woven into the greater context of American history. North American Odyssey was born back in April 2014 on a surprisingly warm afternoon in John’s college room at University of Cambridge. In what seemed like an oasis of calm between assignments, John and Philip (that’s us!) were talking about sharing our travel stories and photos with others like-minded travellers on the internet.
