In a scene repeated thousands of times during the heyday of American yachting, photographer Willard Bramwell Jackson (1871-1940) could often be found motoring his sleek white powerboat, 'Alison,' rapidly around a sailboat in the waters off Marblehead, Massachusetts. In his work, Jackson captured the many dimensions of yachting with meticulous artistry -- from graceful boat designs to a sporting life of outdoor exhilaration, to the intimate affinity sailors share with their vessels at sea.
