J. A. Green (1873–1905) was one of the most prolific and accomplished indigenous photographers to be active in West Africa. This beautiful book celebrates Green’s photographs and opens a new chapter in the early photographic history of Africa. Soon after photography reached the west coast of Africa in the 1840s, the technology and the resultant images were disseminated widely, appealing to African elites, European residents, and travelers to the region. Responding to the need for more photographs, expatriate and indigenous photographers began working along the coasts, particularly in major harbor towns. Green, whose identity remained hidden behind his English surname, maintained a photography business in Bonny along the Niger Delta. His work covered a wide range of themes including portraiture, scenes of daily and ritual life, commerce, and building. Martha G. Anderson, Lisa Aronson, and the contributors have uncovered 350 of Green’s images in archives, publications, and even albums that celebrated colonial achievements. This landmark book unifies these dispersed images and presents a history of the photographer and the area in which he worked.

Review:

"J. A. Green worked for colonials and locals in the Niger Delta circa 1891–1905. His images circulated regionally and internationally for 100 years, but his name and African identity had fallen into obscurity―until this beautifully illustrated and authoritative book. It thoroughly documents Green's photography, considers it through multiple frames of analysis, and challenges simplistic notions of a "colonial gaze.""

(John Peffer editor of Portraiture and Photography in Africa)

"Little is known about J. A. Green and much of his corpus of photographs and the priceless documentation Green kept on each photograph were lost when a family member tragically tossed it all in the trash. Martha G. Anderson and Lisa Aronson have... uncover[ed] not just the story of J. A. Green but, perhaps more importantly, an examination of the intersection of photography and the indigenous and colonial life in Nigeria at the turn of the twentieth century."

(Elisabeth L. Cameron editor of Portraiture and Photography in Africa)

"In the past fifteen or so years, African photography has taken shape as a subject of great interest to art historians of Africa and modern/contemporary art.... This book will enhance our understanding of photography in Africa and especially the earliest years of photographic practices on the continent."

(Joanna Grabski, author of Art World City)
