Between October, 1943, and October, 1945, Sergeant Fred Hill, a young Oregon photographer, sent his wife Martha hundreds of photos and wrote her more than 300 letters. She saved them all. The selected letters and photographs create a unique record of the Pacific Theater—at once verbal and visual, civilian and military, documentary and emotional, historical and personal. Darkroom Soldier is a tribute to the millions of service men and women who toiled throughout the war supporting the frontline troops.  Fred Hill has created an invaluable photographic record of his Pacific surroundings and day to day life in camp.
