on a forthcoming book by the National Park Service, Morristown National Historical Park.  This eBook features 23 photographs and 13 illustrations.


The Ford Mansion was George Washington's military headquarters during the winter encampment of 1779-80.  He spent several months there, joined by his wife Martha, in a home filled with his generals and support staff during that terrible winter.

The National Park Service commissioned the photographs of the 12-room Georgian Revival mansion.  The images feature rich color, detail, and dramatic contrasts of light and shadow using only existing window light with a sparing use of a technique called “light painting.”  The effect is an ethereal quality that spurs the imagination in a way that transcends visiting the actual rooms.

The exhibition of 22 photographs, measuring 18” x 24,” also highlights the Ford Mansion as a residence.  "The domestic aspects are easily lost in the presence of Washington, but Xio has managed to capture the mansion’s essence as a home," explains curator Jude M. Pfister, the park’s Chief of Cultural Resources.
