Bucklin China Archive - Looking at China in 1924


12 Nov 2008

www.bucklinchinaarchive.com, Auburndale, MA, US

"In 1923, Harold Bucklin took his family on a remarkable journey from Providence, Rhode Island to Shanghai, China, where he produced an exquisite body of work of large format photographs of Pre-Revolutionary China using a Graflex camera. [...]

This is a Bucklin Family project. [...] Harold Bucklin is the man who took these photographs in 1923 and 1924. He took this year-long journey with his wife and 2-year-old son, to serve as Visiting Professor of Sociology at Shanghai College as part of a program at Brown University, where he was Assistant Professor of Sociology. Hazel Bucklin was Harold's wife. She possessed an extraordinary gift as a writer, as evidenced in her diary. [...] The son of Harold and Hazel, Don [Donald - ed.] was 2 years old when he accompanied his parents on this trip. He has been the driving force behind salvaging and preserving these images for the world to see. [...] Hope Bucklin is Donald's wife of 55 years and has been a full collaborator in this preservation project and has also done some of the more tedious tasks such as transcribing Hazel's diary, numbering close to 1000 photographs and cross-referencing the negatives."
