Frances Benjamin Johnston: The Hampton Album

Deluxe Edition

Edited with text by Sarah Hermanson Meister. Contribution by LaToya Ruby Frazier.

Frances Benjamin Johnston (1864–1952), credited as the first female photojournalist in the United States, was commissioned in 1899 to photograph the Hampton Institute, then a 30-year-old institution dedicated to the education of young African American and Native American men and women. What became known as the Hampton Album—comprised of 159 luxurious platinum plates that offer insight into the daily life of students, originally exhibited in 1900 at the Exposition Universelle in Paris—is Johnston’s signature work, and a touchstone for contemporary artists and historians.

The leatherbound album was discovered serendipitously by Lincoln Kirstein in a Washington, DC, bookstore during World War II, and donated to MoMA in 1965.

This deluxe edition adheres to the generous scale and format of the original album.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Feature Shoot

Sara Rosen

Johnston’s photographs reveal the tension between ambition and assimilation that has long defined the place of everyone “othered” in American life — the misguided belief of exceptionalism that posits if you pull yourself up by your bootstraps, you can climb the ladder to success. As the first female photojournalist, Johnston may have understood this mission better than most.
