Dr. Hickman publishes two articles in Stereo World magazine

July 8, 2008 -- Dr. Paul Hickman, curator of the Visual Resource Library and assistant professor of art history at Arkansas State University, has written two articles about American photographer John James Reilly which appeared in the January-February and May-June 2008 issues of Stereo World magazine.

The life and works of Reilly, a 19th-century photographer, were featured in the first 13-page article, entitled “John James Reilly: Catalog, Old Series (1867-75) and Views (1865-70).” The second article which is 14 pages is entitled “John James Reilly: Additions to Chronology, Catalog: New Series (1879-86) and Views (1870-86).”

Reilly’s life and works are assessed in a cross-disciplinary study from the complementary perspectives of art, photographic, cultural, social, and economic history. The principal themes depicted by the reproduction and use of 38 of Reilly’s stereographs are Niagara Falls and Yosemite Valley.

Niagara and Yosemite were visited, described, painted, and photographed more than any other American scene. These tourist meccas are portrayed as national icons. Judged by these criteria, Reilly is viewed as a significant figure in the history of American art.
