Virtually unknown today, John Henry Haynes (1849-1910) may be regarded as the father of American archaeological photography. His photographic odyssey took him from Athens to Istanbul, across Anatolia, and ultimately to Mesopotamia.

 

In a landmark study that includes many images published for the first time, Robert G. Ousterhout rediscovers Haynes' career and assesses his unique blend of artistry and documentation.
