William E. Dassonville, a portrait photographer working in San Francisco, is best known for his landscapes, especially in Yosemite, capturing ethereal visions of Eden on earth. A shortage of material needed to make platinum paper arose during World War I, prompting Dassonville to produce and commercialize his own special “Charcoal Black” printing papers. With rich tonal ranges, its velvety texture enhanced the dreamy atmosphere favored by many photographers in the early twentieth century, including a young Ansel Adams. 12.4.2020 CW
