“Enchantments: The Photographic Adventures of Julian Dimock, 1904-1913,”

Frequently traversing the Everglades and Cypress Hammocks by dug-out canoe, few photographers captured Florida’s wild frontier past like Julian Dimock.  His photographs captured an area few had ever seen, and even fewer photographed, while his portraits offer a rare glimpse of the frontiersmen and Florida natives who’s way of life has long since vanished.

Through March 29, the Marco Island Historical Museum will present a slice of Florida’s past with a collection of Dimock’s prints depicting his time in Southwest Florida shortly after the turn of the twentieth-century.
