Marc Walter has compiled an amazing collection of photos for TASCHEN's 'An American Odyssey.'
With Walter's expertise, the publication seeks to paint a comprehensive picture of America's earliest days. The series depicts midwest mining towns, steam boats in New York's first ports and a smattering of industrial cities, humming with incipient potential. Together, the images weave an exciting narrative of the 'New World' being discovered, developed and honed to the superpower it is today. It's like the prequel to the America we're so familiar with,
Walter utilized Photochrom and Photostint technology to restore the images, and ultimately bring us a dedicated inspection of American life in an entirely different context. History buffs will definitely appreciate this extensive inquiry at what America looked like over a century ago.
