africa expeditions

i found these images via little paper planes and they blew me away! they were taken on research trips for the chicago field museum, some as early as 1896. the color was added by hand to glass slides, resulting in images that combine the effects of photography and landscape painting. so incredibly beautiful.

  1. these are stunning.
    i ventured to kenya and worked at a rehabilitation center for street children and fell in love with the whole continent.
    these photos take me back. they’re wonderful.

  2. Oh same! This time last year I was in Uganda, and three years ago spent some time dancing in Ghana. Everyone should go to Africa. These pictures make me wish I was there now!!! <3
