Illustrating the Far East
Lynn A. Davis
Head, Preservation Department, Hamilton Library, UHM

FAR EAST, a photographically illustrated 19th century newspaper, published images to
document everyday life in Japan and China.  Japanese and European photographers
contributed illustrations.  What was their point of view?  Did they provide a glimpse of daily life in the “Far East” or did they convey a satisfying exotic view that fueled interest in the Far East as a destination?

Lynn Davis is from Kaneohe, and is the Head of Preservation at the University of Hawai‘i Library.
