11/14/2019 - From Oz to Oceania: Portraits of Peoples by Two Kansans with a Kodak

 Cache   

In a time when most Americans never ventured beyond their own shores, two Kansans, Martin and Osa Johnson, brought home the sights and sounds of faraway places. In their films and books, they introduced audiences to exotic peoples and presented close-up encounters with epic creatures. The silent images the Johnsons shined on silver screens across the world electrified audiences. Each new expedition contained heightened thrills and crossed yet another frontier of exploration and cinematography. In 1917, they were among the first to create a visual record of life and custom in Oceania, primarily in the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Their photographs capture the faces of island ancestors and documented island culture that shaped people's lives 100 years ago. This presentation will include Johnsonian photographs and film footage prepared for South Seas centennial commemorations around the globe.

Martin and Osa Johnson spent their lives seeking and exploring the unusual and the unknown. They both grew up in Kansas, with Martin Johnson calling Lincoln and Independence home. Osa Leighty was born in Chanute and before she met Martin, she had never been more than 30 miles from home. Before he married Osa, Martin had traveled around the world and worked for the famous American writer Jack London. When his travels with London were over, he returned, met and married Osa, and together, with courage, cameras, and a small amount of money earned by working vaudeville, Martin and Osa left the U.S. to seek out the remote and uncharted regions of the world. After their Oceanic expeditions, Martin and Osa continued traveling the world, resulting in two expeditions to North Borneo and five to regions of Africa. Martin Johnson was killed in a commercial airplane crash in California in 1937; Osa was injured but survived to live another 16 years before dying of heart disease. The Johnsons could not have children, so at Osa's death, all their lifeworks, including more than 40 miles of film and thousands of photographs, promotional materials, personal correspondence, and field journals were inherited by Osa's mother, Belle Leighty. Mrs. Leighty opened the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum in Chanute, Kansas on June 11, 1961. The museum features award-winning exhibits of the Johnsons' lives and adventures, ethnic cultures, and changing themes of special exhibits.

Jacquelyn Borgeson Zimmer is the curator of the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum in Chanute, Kansas. Hired in 1995 just after graduating with an M.A. in museum studies from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, she develops collection conservation programs and curates the museum's onsite and traveling exhibitions. She is also the liaison with the museum's three sister museums in Africa and Malaysia. She has presented lecture programs and done collection field study across the U.S., at the museum's sister sites, as well as in Chile, Ireland, the Czech Republic, and most recently Vanuatu. For the 100th anniversary of the Johnsons' expeditions to Oceania, Borgeson Zimmer worked with the Vanuatu Heritage Center to develop and open a photograph exhibition at Port Villa.
