Margaret Thomas became fascinated with Shoki Kayamori's images and story years ago, and this ambitious book reveals the depths of her engagement with this man and his art. Part history, part biography, part photographic showcase, Picture Man turns the old adage about pictures and words around and around again. Fans of history and photography from Tokyo to Nome will find insights and details available nowhere else. And in the center of that history, an enigmatic man with camera. Shoki Kayamori left an enduring legacy, hundreds of images of a small, Alaska village, that captured a divided and changing place and time. But in Picture Man, Margaret Thomas gives the reader more than one lens through which to view Kayamori's life. She explores the economic and political realities the sent Kayamori, and thousands like him, out of Japan toward opportunity and adventure in the United States, especially the Pacific Northwest. The courtship, wedding, and life together of Helen Emery and Gunjiro Aoki highlight the racism that sent many young men north to work in the canneries of Alaska. In the early 20th century, Kayamori made his way to Yakutat to work in the canneries, too. But he also took a camera. For the next three decades, Shoki Kayamori would document the lives of his friends and villagers. But as tensions leading up the Japan's involvement in World War II escalated, Kayamori took his own life.

The Godly Man s Picture

B. That a godly man esteems him precious. A. Jesus Christ is precious in himself. "Behold, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone" (1 Pet. 2:6). 1. Christ is compared to "a bundle of myrrh" (Song 1:13).

The Godly Man's Picture, Drawn with a Scripture Pencil, or, Some Characteristic Marks of a Man who is Going to Heaven. The soul being so precious, and salvation so glorious-it is the highest point of prudence to make preparations for the eternal world. It is beyond all dispute, that there is an inheritance in light; and it is most strenuously asserted in Holy Scripture that there must be a fitness and suitability for it (Col. 1:12). If anyone asks, "Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord?" the answer is, "He who has clean hands, and a pure heart" (Psalm 24:4). To describe such a person is the work of this ensuing treatise. Here you have the godly man's portrait, and see him portrayed in his full lineaments

W.R. Trivett (1884-1966), a farmer born in Watauga County, North Carolina, was also a self-taught professional photographer who left behind an invaluable collection of more than 400 glass plate negatives taken between 1907 and the late 1940s in the Beech Mountain community of neighboring Avery County. Along with the photographs (105 are reproduced herein), a collection of Trivett's personal papers survive, revealing very enlightening information about his life in the mountains. This work--the fourth in McFarland's continuing series of Contributions to Southern Appalachian Studies--carefully examines Trivett's life and photographs, comparing his work to that of contemporary outside photographers who often produced stereotypical images of mountain people. Through Trivett's images we can, by contrast, see the everyday reality for most people in rural Appalachia.
