In 1886 the architect Wright designed and built the Hillside Home School for his aunts Ellen and Jane Lloyd-Jones in the rolling hills of Wisconsin. Ten years later, while constructing a modern windmill on the property, he made a series of Japanese-inflected photographs of the school’s buildings and landscapes and the activities of its students. Wright continued to photograph on the property until 1900. This delightfully odd landscape study of students and teachers playing golf is a collotype, made using a complex photomechanical printing process of such refinement that it is often taken for a direct imprint of a negative. It likely was made for a publication, never realized, on the progressive school.
